How to sort quickly books by filetype?

Hi.

I want to convert several doc and epub books to pdf. Is there a way or a plug-in so that Calilbre can quickly identify and sort books by filetype and then convert to pdf in bulk? Thanks in advanced for any help.

Hi theducks and thank you for your fast reply.
I'm rather new to Calibre and trying to understand your answer. Do I have to write exactly what you posted in the search window?

Yes (not including the word Search )

Or you can use the Tag Browser to build the search

First check/set the mode At the Bottom:

Alter Tag Browser:Search type...:Match All

Now you are ready

In the Tag Browser:
Formats: EPUB <click until a Green Plus shows
hold down the control key Click PDF until a Red Minus

(let up on the key)
Clock GO at the end of the search bar

Hi again theducks

....almost there. I have done what you suggested, there is only one thing. The selected format apears highlited in green WITH all the other formats. In this way, only about 8 files appear scatered between hundreds of PDF's so its difficult to spot them. What must I do so ONLY the selected format appears in the window?
