I am trying to create pdf files using, but I don't want to use a report in the current DB.  I need to be able to convert excel files from a drive to pdf using Lebans pdf converter.  

I am creating the excel files in MS Access then saving them to a drive, those same files I would like to convert which happen to be over 30 excel files.

Using MS Access 2003

Hi asarda,

The lebans converter doesn't convert Excel files-- only  Reports and Snapshot files .
If you want to upgrade to Office 2007 you can have save to pdf built in, otherwise have a look at Adobe writer or a free pdf writer.

Good Luck!
