Is there a way to create a pdf out of an excel document using VB code. I'm running Office 2000 and I have the Adobe Acrobat PDF writer. I'm generating an excel file from within an ActiveX dll and I want to be able to convert it to pdf from within the same dll. Is this possible? If so, How?

You need to print the excel filet to Adobe Distiller.

What's wrong with you? You post a link and expect an A. You didn't do anything and the site you sent didn't really solve my problem anyway. I got a good solution from another forum (No Offense to EE).

I'll tell you how I grade. You post a code snippet that works and solves my problem you get an A. You post a good explanation with little or no code you get a B. You post a link that doesn't really solve the problem, you dont get anything. I only accepted YOUR answer to kill the question. Don't be a whinny biatch.

You are missing something: If link didn't solve your problem, just ask for more help.
Better if you asked to community support to delete the question.
That's all. I don't want points for nothing with any grade.
