I am looking for a SharePoint Moss 2007 solution with the conversion of Word documents into PDFs. When we upload Word documents to a document library, the properties of the document map to columns we have created. When we upload PDFs, we lose those properties and have to re-enter the information. My question is this: With your Word and PDF tools, if I convert a Word document to a PDF, does your tool inherit the properties as part of the conversion process? We convert thousands of Word documents to PDFs and need a solution that recognizes the properties when converted so that they do not have to be re-entered.
Any insight is greatly appreciated, as we are looking to evaluate tools.
