Finding an Excel to PDF converter used to be something of a challenge. When you type “Excel to PDF converter” into Google, you’re faced with a deluge of various “free” and paid options. Then once you have gone through all of the hassle of picking out a converter program and downloading and installing it on your computer, you have to deal with the hassle of figuring out how to use it. Each program worked a little differently and, none of them had the same settings or options. It was a major hassle to just produce a PDF file from an Excel file.
Enter Excel’s Excel to PDF Converter
Luckily, we are no longer faced with such challenges, as Microsoft has created a built-in Excel to PDF converter in both Excel 2010 and Excel 2013. The easiest way to covert an Excel file into a PDF file is to simple go to the File Tab and click “Save & Send”. Then simply choose the “Send as PDF” option.
This will prompt Excel to automatically convert the open file into a PDF document and attach it to an email in your default email program. From there, you can simply send the document to whoever you want. If you need the PDF for your own use (and you’re using Outlook), you can simply click and drag the PDF file into any available folder on your computer. This is, by far, the easiest way to convert an Excel file into a PDF file. Excel’s built-in Excel to PDF converter takes literally seconds to use, and there are no downloads from sketchy websites or complicated installations involved. Simply click the “Send as PDF” button and go!
