Convert To Adobe Pdf

Hello Excel Guru's

I know how to convert a single worksheet into a PDF (Menu>Adobe PDF>Convert to Adobe PDF) but what I am trying to do is convert a file with multiple worksheets into 1 PDF file but it only converts the sheet that I am in.

For example:
I am in sheet 1 and I do the convert PDF command it will only convert sheet 1

If I select and group sheets 1,2 and 3 and do the command on sheet 1, it still only converts sheet 1 into PDF.

If I right click on the file thru Internet Explorer and select convert to Adobe PDF command, it still only converts the first worksheet into a PDF.

Im sure there is a way where you can convert all worksheets and append them into 1 PDF file.

Long way is, convert each sheet and then insert each sheet thru Adobe to create 1 file.

Hi all,

I've been happily using the code on the webpage below to automatically convert an XLS file into a PDF through VBA for a while now (almost 2 years). Our machines here at the office had been running Adobe 6.0 Standard, but were recently upgraded to Adobe 8.0 Standard. Now the VBA code gets as far as creating a postscript (.ps) file but fails to convert that into a PDF. All machines are still running Windows XP Pro SP2 with Excel 2002 SP3.

Has anyone run into this situation? If so have you found a solution?
The automation saves me literally hours each month and I need to find a solution.

I am trying to convert my file (60 sheets) into a pdf with Adobe Acrobat. Conversion stops on the 43rd sheet and gives me the following error message - the number must be between 10 and 400. try again by entering a number in this range - I cannot convert the whole document, only 43 pages.

After a little research on the net, I don't believe this is an Adobe issue. I believe it is a printing-related issue in excel. There are hotfixes but I am wondering if there is something I can do in excel to elimnate the error?

Thank you for your help,

I'm re-vamping a form that I made last year. Currently the function I'm evalutating works in the following way. Upon confirmation that all the entered information is complete, copies are e-mailed to the relivant project leaders.

Problem: The problem with this is the average size of these copies is roughly 130kb. If I convert the summary page (which is all that needs to be sent out) into a PDF, the file size goes down to about 8kb.

Why I think this should be possible. Both Adobe Acrobat and Nitro PDF (we use both) have "Convert to PDF & Email" buttons that are on the toolbar, however, since these are add-ons, they aren't in the VBA help file, and we all know how good the support is that Adobe offers.

If nothing else, is it possible for me to do a print macro using and then send the output as an attachment?

Does anyone have any ideas on how to do what I'm trying to do?

I have successfully managed to convert an Excel sheet to PDF using some code found in a previous thread (many thanks), and I am using Adobe Professional v7. The problem is that it can only be used if the user has Adobe professional. I have then tried to do the same using Primo PDF writer(free version), but have encountered an issue in that you have to manually enter the save path into a print window, instead of picking up a save path from a reference in the worksheet.
Is anyone aware of the code that could be used to bypass this, or alternatively a method for an excel sheet to be converted to PDF without the expense of all users buying Adobe Professional.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi friends,

I want to convert the pdf file into word file .

I just try to convert a PDF file to Word but i m not able to edit it. The PDF is an image file of some kind. It contains a grid with headings and contents that I would like to be able to edit or somehow convert to text. I was able to create a JPG of the section I would like to edit, but I cannot do much with that. It would be too difficult to edit as an image file in Paint or similiar software. I have already tried some online sites to convert the JPG to text. The only thing I get back is a comma and sometimes a parathesis. Are there any suggestions on how I can convert the image file into a format that can be edited in Word?

please give me your suggestions.

From c:\Awesome File\FTP\My Awesome File.txt

to c:\Awesom~1\FTP\My~1.txt

The actual path/file name is much longer and is determined by multiple fillable fields, cells, and drop down menu's so the only feasible way at the moment seems to be that I need some code to convert the file/path name all at once.

I need to convert several columns of dates in excel to text. When I simply
use the format cells command to reformat the cells to text, it first converts
the date back to the underlying number then converts it to text. Hope I'm
being clear here.

Example - the date as viewed on the screen is Mon (Monday). When I convert
it to text I get 38446. I want "Mon", in text format. Thanks!
