SOLUTION: Create a PDF straight from Word or Excel.
Word, Excel & PowerPoint 2010 & 2013 – Save your document as a PDF
Microsoft Office 2010 & 2013 offer you the ability to save your document as a PDF, even if you don’t have PDF creation software loaded on your computer.
To do this:
- Open the file you want to PDF.
- From the File tab select Save As.
- Select the location for the saved file. In the Save As dialog box click the drop-down arrow for the Save as type list. Select PDF.
