Supposed conversion

Convert Word, Excel, and PowerPoint docs to PDFs with this program.

Word Excel PowerPoint to Pdf Converter will supposedly convert Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents to PDFs; however, a trial restriction prevented us from seeing the full outcome.

We tested the trial version, which is so limited that we couldn't tell if the program works properly or not. We selected a Word and an Excel document to try with the program. We were informed that the trial version would only convert part of the documents; that for full document conversion we must purchase the program. We let the program convert our files, and when we viewed them, because of the truncated files we could not tell if the program converted both the Word file and the Excel file or just the Word file. The trial version put "unregistered trial version" on the resulting PDF, and we could see that just fine. Without being able to test it fully, we can't recommend this program. Even if we could test it fully, we aren't sure of the need for this program. Word, Excel, and Powerpoint all have a "Save as PDF" option in the 2007 version of Microsoft Office. Users can usually save files as PDFs with older versions of these programs by selecting the option from within the Print menu.

Word Excel PowerPoint to Pdf Converter installs easily and does not create any unwanted desktop shortcuts. However, the trial version does not uninstall cleanly, leaving a folder in your Program Files. The program has a Help feature, but it does not provide the user with any real information. There are easier ways to accomplish what this program aims to do. Skip this program and look for save as PDF options within your Microsoft Office programs.
