Open Word document and re-save as PDF
 
I was wondering if anyone had a macro or means to open a MS-Word document via automation and save it as a PDF document from with in VBP.

Unfortunately Microsoft does not include any command line switches to perform this operation and obviously would have to be done via automation.

I would then like to include this process as a step in VBP (version 7.7a by the way).

Any help is appreciated :D

Thank you for the assist. Where should I put these scripts (Appears to be VBA) and how do I pass parameters to them. I created a step in my project ConvertWordToPDF, and pasted this script in but I dont see any way to pass it any parms. :)

Typically, the dynamic value will be stored in a Visual Build macro (from a list in a loop, passed on the command-line, etc.), which you can reference in a Run Script step like so: %WORD_FILENAME%

Or just put the filename in the code. You can put the function definition in project script code and call it from multiple Run Script steps.
