Spreadsheets are the most common type of data file used on computers. It is easy to use, and anyone can open a spreadsheet and edit it. The problem with spreadsheets is that they’re not very useful after you’ve finished editing them. PDF files are much more stable than Excel files because they don’t change daily (unlike spreadsheets).
However, there’s only one way for someone to create a PDF from an.xls file after first converting it into another format (such as Word) before converting Excel to PDF. Adobe Acrobat experts state, “Convert from Excel to a new PDF in a matter of seconds.” This is where software comes in handy:
Step 1: Load your excel file.
To convert a file, you need to first load it. You have several options for loading your Excel file:
- Upload a file from your computer (local) by clicking the “Browse” button and picking the desired file on your desktop or in a folder. Or drag it directly into the main window.
- Enter a URL link to Google Drive, Dropbox or Box. If you have an online storage account where you store files, click on the “Browse” button next to “Uploading from Storage Services” and pick the desired service from which you want to access that particular document/file/sheet (you can use one of these services as many times as needed). All additional data will be automatically copied over without needing any manual intervention at all! Or simply drag-and-drop them onto this panel – if there are multiple sheets in an Excel workbook, then they’ll all be converted into PDFs without any problems whatsoever!
Step 2: Click on the “Upload and Convert” button
After you’ve selected and uploaded your file, all you have to do is click the “Upload and Convert” button. This will take you to a page that shows a summary of your upload, including the name and size of your file. Before converting, ensure this information is accurate, as you cannot change the name or size after uploading. Once everything looks good, click on “Convert.”
Step 3: Download/Save your PDF
Now that you’ve got the hang of it, it’s time to save your file as a PDF.
To do this, simply click “Download” and then “Save.” Instead, you’ll be prompted to enter a name for your document and choose where you want to store it on your computer.
Click Save again when asked if you want to open or save the file—there is no need to wait for anything else because everything happens automatically!
Now all that’s left is opening up the PDF in Adobe Reader or another compatible application.
