    Printing files to a file.

    Hi.
    Im just doing my network documentation.
    The way im doing it, as i always do with large reports, is have each section seperated into its own document and numbered.

    However, what i want to do, is print this collections of word, excel, publisher & visio docuements into one large PDF containing them all.

    Anyone know how i'd go about doing this?

    Thanks in advance all. .

    Insert each of the documents into one large one, and print that to a PDF psudo-printer.

    Do them seperately and merge the PDFs in the Pages view of Acrobat (full version, not reader)

    So Acrobat full can merge multiple pdfs into one large pdf?

    Yes, and I think the open source PDF Creator can, too - at least, I could swear I've seen that mentioned in the features list.

    i print them all off native then use the photocopier to scan the lot and create a pdf, this also allows you to add things like manuals or photos/diagrams or handwritten notes.

    PDF Split and Merge will merge multiple PDFs into one - free and open source.

    Yeah - open one file, open the pages sidebar, then drop the icons for the other files into the sidebar.
