PDF Conversion in SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • In SharePoint 2007 is there a automatic way to convert a document in PDF file as soon as it gets uploaded in a Document Library. In SharePoint 2010?? Thanks a lot.

  • There's no out of the box way of doing that in SharePoint 2007. I don't think this feature exists in SharePoint 2010, but don't know for sure.

    Office 2007+ have built-in feature for converting documents to PDF. Users can convert the documents into PDF first and then upload their document. Otherwise, you'll need to look for 3rd party solutions (if any exists) that can do this for you.

  • I found two good links for out of box solutions that convert a document into a PDF file automatically when a user uploads a document in a SharePoint document library.

  • You should have a look at this software:


    Simply install it on your SharePoint servers, specify for which libraries you want the uploaded files to be converted to PDF et voilà!

    Files uploaded to these libraries will be converted to PDF on the server when being uploaded.

    MKZip also include on the fly XML optimization for DOCX, PPX and XLSX , image optimization for JPG, GIF, BMP, EMF and JPG files, and Zip compression. Same principle, files get optimized or compressed when uploaded by the SharePoint users to given libraries.

    Hope this will help!
