I have a number of Microsoft Works databases which I wish to convert to pdf files. This is difficult enough, but when I DO manage to do it, the pages aren't wide enough to take the data. Does anyone know if it is possible to save in the horizontal format?

Do you have Adobe Acrobat? If so, you can use Document|Rotate Pages after you've created the PDF file.

Sorry, I didn't read the question properly :o(

Have you tried File|Print, selecting Acrobat Distiller as the printer then clicking Properties and selecting Landscape on the Layout tab?

Unfortunately, I don't have the Acrobat Distiller available.

On Primo PDF and Jaws PDF there is the opportunity to change to landscape or rotated landscape by clicking on printer properties-> layout -> orientation.

I don't know if this is available on Acrobat as I gave up using it due to the expense.

What software are you using to convert tp PDF?

For info Primo PDF is free click here so, even if you have another PDF writer, it might be worthwhile downloading Primo.

Thank you both for your responses. I am using something called Docudesk to convert to pdf. I am wanting to transfer these databases onto CD for distribution. Changing the orientation of the printer would not help with the problem of the width of page required to accommodate the 5/6 columns of information.

According to click here it allows print to PDF. So have you tried File|Print and looking for Docudesk as an available printer? You should then be able to change the page orientation.

Thank you 'VoG', I shall pursue this line.
