How do I print a PDF document in Microsoft Office 2007?

With the release of Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft introduced a file format called XPS. It is similar to PDF in that you can save a file to this format and share or print it at a later date. This XPS format is not the global standard and not many people know what it is when they receive it. Fortunately, Microsoft has released a download that now gives you the choice to save your document as a PDF or XPS file.

Hi I never knew about it, but thanks, very useful to create PDF directly from the Office. However, what if you have the Acrobat Distiller (our users use the acrobat to create PDFs), any conflicts? the PDF that will be generated through this add-on, will be compatible with which version of Acrobat, so other users will be able to open them?

This was a fantastic tip - thanks so much - I really have had so many problems printing to xps and no-one can open the attachments. This really has saved me a lot of time.
