    Linking 10 seperate word documents to create one PDf

    Does any body know of any freeware little app, that i can install on a machine for the deputy head so that she can link different word docs together to create one large PDF, without using adobe, as we don't have a license!!

    Maybe long winded, but...

    Use OpenOffice and copy/paste the contents of the documents into one large doc then save as PDF?

    I have been using the free version of PDF Redirect for this kind of thing.

    You can drag each Word doc to a merge list, then you can merge them!

    You could always do it the other way round - print all 10 docs to PDF then join the PDFs, lots of free apps around for that

    Yup - I second this. Very quick, and more importantly, accurate output from PDF Creator.
    I use it for creating PDFs all the time. (Creates a "PDF Printer" you can print from anything to, and "prints" it into a PDF)
    PDFCreator | Get PDFCreator at SourceForge.net

    You can then use PDF Tools to combine them.

    PS: Forgot to say - PDF Tools can split and encrypt PDFs too

    1. Install pdf995, pdfedit995 and signature995 from here pdf 995: create PDF documents easily for free

    2. Use to create pdf for each word document (File > Print to pdf995)

    3. use pdfedit995 to merge pdfs in any order you want (My biggest merge so far 140 separate 1 page documents!)

    Very straightforward
