color mode: cmyk
now, it doesn't actually make a difference what format the document is in, it matters what format the colors are in. selecting the color mode is just setting the color palette to cmyk for starters. you can have rgb, cmyk and pms colors in the same document. (pointless, i know)
make sure you have window > color open
select a color in your document.
make sure the color in the color window is in cmyk format. RGB codes will be 6-digits, CMYK will be displayed as percentages of C, M, Y and K. (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black- sorry if I'm telling you things you already know!
If your colors are showing up as RGB, click the drop-down and select CMYK. You don't have to do this for each object, select all, hit the drop down, and chose CMYK.
