What’s new in this release?

In past, you have had to use Aspose.Cells and Aspose.Pdf for converting Excel files to PDF but now it is possible by using current version 4.7.0 of Aspose.Cells only. This version further supports: Inserting a WAV file as OLE object, reading or writing check boxes in Excel 2007 files and many other hot features for spreadsheet reporting.

You will utilize the overloaded Save method of the Workbook class providing the FileFormatType.Pdf enum member that converts the native excel file to pdf format.

The above steps are implemented in the following example


//Instantiate the Workbook object
Workbook workbook = new Workbook();

//Open an excel file

//Save the document in Pdf format
workbook.Save("f:\\test\\Output.pdf", FileFormatType.Pdf);


'Instantiate the Workbook object
Dim workbook As Workbook = New Workbook()

'Open an excel file

'Save the document in Pdf format
workbook.Save("f:\test\Output.pdf", FileFormatType.Pdf)
