Default What's the best free PDF creator from Word 2000 documents inan old Windows XP Pro SP3?

I don't want my formatting (tables, bullets, etc.) to be changed, lost,
etc. too. I need the PDF to be readable in any software and any platforms.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks. I recently used http://www.primopdf.com/ which seems to be good
enough for me.

Yes. Haven't used either one myself, but I've read good things about both
your Primo PDF and a Nitro PDF. Enjoy in good health :-) . Cheers, -- tlvp

I've used PDFfactory

http://fineprint.com/pdf/

which is a paid version.

PDF Creator did just as good a job with a single document, but could
not concatenate documents into a single file as PDFfactory does.

To concatenate multiple documents into a single file, I use pdftk, aka "the
PDF ToolKit" (q.v. in your favorite search engine). HTH. Cheers, -- tlvp

Yup. More accurately, going thru' google-finds for [ pdftk - pdf toolkit ]:

| ... https://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-...-toolkit/PDFtk - The PDF Toolkit.
| PDFtk is a simple tool for doing everyday things with PDF documents.
| It comes in three flavors: PDFtk Free, PDFtk Pro, and ...

I use a free CLI .exe version in a Win Vista, 7, or 8.1 DOS box.
There are versions good in Linux, maybe MacOS, as well.
HTH. Cheers, -- tlvp
