A PDF is a fixed document used to display document contents uniformly independent of application software, hardware, and operating system. The Syncfusion Excel library converts an Excel document to PDF with just five lines of code. You can prepare your document for long-term archiving by converting it to PDF with conformance level PDF/A1B.

Key features

Fast and reliable

Converts complex Excel documents to PDF in a batch process faster than with Office automation libraries.

Partial trust environment

Convert Excel documents to PDF in partial trust environments like Microsoft Azure.

Excel-to-PDF options

Layout options

Excel-to-PDF conversion can be customized by setting certain parameters like to fit an entire sheet in one page, fit all rows or columns in one page, and convert sheets in specified scaling.

Embed font subset

Embed the font glyphs from the TrueType fonts only for the characters used in the document (best for reducing file size).

Embed complete font

Embed the complete TrueType fonts used in the document and display the document contents uniformly independent of whether the font is available or not.

Font substitution

Our built-in font substitution event allows you to choose alternate fonts from the device or upload required fonts.

Export hyperlinks in Excel that jump to different cells of the same or a different worksheet.

Header or footer elements separated into left, center, and right sections are exported.

Blank rows

Cells with styles applied but no data entered in them are considered to be blank cells. Rows with such cells are controlled on PDF export.

Blank pages

A large number of blank rows in a worksheet creates blank pages. Such pages can be controlled in Excel-to-PDF conversion.

Document properties

Export document properties with the details of title, author name, subject, and keywords.

Grid display style

Optionally export Excel files with grid lines. By default, the grid lines are invisible.

Optimize PDFs

Maintain identical images as a single copy within a converted PDF to reduce the converted file size. Also, adjust JPEG image quality and resolution to optimize the converted PDF file size.

Capture warnings

Unsupported elements and missing fonts that are substituted in Excel-to-PDF conversion are captured as warnings.


Comments (notes) are rendered in Excel-to-PDF conversion. The position of the comments rendered in the PDF can be set.
