Acrobat 9 can easily convert all of the worksheets in your Excel files to PDF, but if you want to convert many Excel documents in batch to PDF (sometimes called Excel to PDF converter, PDF convert or PDF conversion), there are a few additional tricks involved.
Acrobat makes a distinction between the settings you employ inside an application like Excel to convert to PDF (the Excel PDF Maker) and settings you use to convert in bulk via Acrobat.
Acrobat generally ignores some of the personal settings you've made in the PDF Maker. Instead, you'll need to set Acrobat application preferences to get Excel file conversion to work the way you want. Here's how:
If you have Acrobat Standard, you can convert multiple Excel files to PDF. The limitation is that they all need to be in the same folder.
Acrobat will convert each Excel document to PDF and open it. You will need to individually save each PDF document at the end of the process.
If you have Acrobat Pro (or Pro Extended) you can take advantage of batch sequences to automate the conversion process.
An Acrobat Batch Sequence allows you to specify a number of operations to be made to a file. The following section describes how to build a very simple sequence.
To create a Batch Process to convert many text files, follow these steps:
To run the batch sequence, follow these steps:
Batch Sequences may also be used to create Headers and Footers that number pages, add watermarks and much more.
This is easy to do in both Acrobat 8 and 9, Standard or Pro!
