How to Save a Publisher 2003 File as a PDF

by Greg Lindberg

The Microsoft Office Publisher 2003 desktop publisher application helps you to create layouts for documents and Web pages. In some instances you may need to save a page you are creating in a different format. Saving your document as a Portable Document Format (PDF) is best for compressing your file to send in an email--it also prevents anyone else from making changes to the page. In order to save a document as a PDF, a conversion utility such as Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader must be installed on your machine.


Open the Microsoft Publisher 2003 application on your computer.


Click on the "File" option from the top menu and then click on the "Print" option. The Print dialog box will then appear.


Select the PDF option from the drop-down list of printers and then click on the box next to the "Print to file" box so that it's deselected.


Click on "Properties" to select any changes for the PFD, such as a orientation and size. Click on the "OK" button.


Select the "OK" button in the Print dialog box, and then click on the "OK" button. Choose a location on your computer to save the PDF file, from the dialog box that appears.


Click on the "Save" button. Your Publisher 2003 file will then be converted into a PDF file.
