Dear PC Dr:

I have several different documents.  Some are in Word, some are in Publisher.  I want to save them as one document, and turn it into a PDF, and post it online so people can see it.  Can I do that?  I’m using Windows 7.




Dear Gerald:


First, open the document that you want to have at the top of the PDF.  Scroll down to its very end.  Insert a page break.  Then, open the document you want to have next.  Select all (ctrl A) and copy (ctrl C) the second document.  Go back to the first document and paste (ctrl P) it below the page break.  Once the second document is pasted in, add another page break below it.  Repeat as many times as necessary, until all your work is in a single document.

Now, if you are working in Publisher, Go to the File menu at the top of the screen.  From the pull-down menu, choose “Save As.”  At the bottom of the next dialog box, you will see a button next to “Save as type.”  Click where it says “Publisher Files” and, instead, choose PDF.  You will now have a single PDF including all of the documents you just combined.

Until next time,
Happy Computing!
