How about OpenOffice inbuilt PDF converter API? Any experience using this API before? My application is using OpenOffice to generate Excel report. It might be convenient to be able to use the same OpenOffice API to convert the Excel to PDF. However, we haven't found the codes to use that portion of codes yet. Please share with me too if you have the sample code. Thanks.

objects, I looked through iText briefly. It looks like program used the API to generate PDF from scratch. Can it actually convert Excel to PDF accurately?
