I have Office 2007 and when using Word I can click on Save as a PDF document ... which is great. 

However, I cannot find any sign of a PDF creation program either as a stand-alone or as a Word Add-in, nor recollect downloading Microsoft's PDF Add-in.

Other than calling Mulder & Sculley, can anyone offer an explanation?

the "save as pdf" option in word 2007 (office 2007) was definately a add-on, but provided by microsoft. i'm unsure if they bundled it into a later service pack, but the original download is here:

Ahh, yes, have found confirmation that Office 2007 SP2 included the PDF 'creator' Add-in.

Mystery solved .
