Operating under the umbrella of ActivePDF's suite of server-based PDF content curation, DocConverter allows control of PDF conversion for enterprise applications while enabling process management from a centralized location.
In this Learning Center article, we'll provide instructions on how to convert Word documents to PDF in 7 easy steps.
This process is easy enough for novices to follow, but also gives you a glimpse of the potential scalability power that users and enterprise applications require.
With each version of Microsoft Word, the standards for the DOC format change slightly, which can cause some compatibility issues. This is why it is recommended to convert Word files to PDF, especially before archiving.
As we know, one of the biggest advantages to using PDF files is that there are regular updates to the file type, which can improve security, handling of different formats, and more. This is great because it means you won’t have to deal with the potential of compromised files due to an un-updated format.
Another important reason for converting PDF to Word in an archiving situation, is that a PDF is compatible with virtually any platform. Just about anyone can open a PDF whether it is on Windows, Mac, an iPhone or Android; and without the need of running Microsoft software.
In just those 7 simple steps, a Word file has been converted to PDF and can now be accessible locally for individual users or via a network for file sharing across enterprise business configurations.
DocConverter provides a multitude of configuration options allowing full customization to cater to both personal and professional needs such as:
• Microsoft Excel to PDF conversion

• Secures PDF output with 40-bit or 128-bit RC4; or 128 or 256-bit AES encryption

• Script actions to take place after file conversion
