Tom Van Dam writes:  just finished reading your latest Access Watch on the new PDF feature in Office 2007.  I have often wanted to save files to PDF format for storage and later reading.  I came across a utility to do this and best of all, it is free.  The program is called Primo PDF and is available at  The current version is 3.0.
