Creating Excellent PDFs from Excel

One of the most challenging aspects of converting Excel files to PDF is ensuring the table columns fit within the page width of your PDF file. Often, you may find that columns spill over onto a separate page, making it difficult for readers to navigate through the data in a meaningful way. However, it is possible to better control tables, ensuring that related data can be viewed together exactly as intended.

To ensure your table fits within your PDF page width

  1. From Excel, select the worksheet to be converted and choose File > Page Setup, and then click the Page tab.
  2. Under Scaling, click Fit to.
  3. In the first box beside Fit to, enter 1 (for 1 page wide). Delete the value in the second box so that the number of pages tall is unspecified.
  4. Click OK to save your changes, then print to PrimoPDF as usual.
To ensure your table fits within a specified number of pages

Choose File > Page Setup, and then select Fit To. Enter the desired number of pages, click OK and print to PrimoPDF as usual. It's that easy!
