My ability to use the Save command to PDF doesn't work

This operation was working fine .... the one day I was unable to use the SAVE command in Word 2007,  to save my file as a PDF document.    It somehow stated saving them as a corrupt Wordpad file   ---- that was complete jibberish.   However  ---- I can depress the ACROBAT in word and it will covert the file.   Is there a way to correct this problem.    When trying to use that option     Save, the changing to PDF,   it performs something  --- but the file box shows something to do with wordpad.

There has to be a way to correct this.

It isn't clear exactly what you see happening.

If you do a Save As, you should be able to choose PDF(*.pdf) from the 'Save as type:' dropdown.

Does that happen?

What I have do in the past is  was:

Having the document that I was working in Word 2007

Then I would use the    SAVE command

In the lower FILE Type box   ---   I would   change the type   to:   PDF

like magic  a PDF document.

Somehow NOW ----   when I perform the same steps ---  it becomes some type of CORRUPTED wordpad file  ---  the just plane  "jibberish"  or garble.

However  ---   If  I  have a word document that I'm working on and I select the Adobe button from within word.   It will create a PDF document.    A few more steps but it does perform the function.

Not sure why you think that it is a corrupted WordPad file.

However, try the fix from Microsoft here:

Perhaps your [Save As PDF or XPS] add-in got hosed. Download it from here:

And reinstall it. Regards, Joe
