How to upload a gear list on 10/11/2010 22:09:24 MDT Print View

Hey all
I want to upload a gear list onto my profile....but all I got is an excel document. How do I change that into a PDF?
Thanks
Dan

Mine is MS Office 2004, because it has taken Microsoft this long to come up with an update for the Mac (I don't yet have the new one). On mine, you hit "Print" and a menu comes up showing your printer and what pages you want to print. At the lower left is a button saying "pdf." Hit that and you can save your Excel spreadsheet as a .pdf file. That's what you are going to upload. On this site, go to "My Account" and then "Change my Profile." At the bottom is a button you click to choose the file to upload.

I haven't tried this yet, but it looks pretty easy even to this comparative luddite, once I found the pdf thing on the Print menu!

You may need to download a free SaveToPDF addon.

I tried the print thing....but there was no button that said "pdf" to convert it.

That's because it's not built into the Windows version, at least not up to the 2007 version.

Download the free Microsoft addon. You won't print to pdf, you'll save to it.
