one explanation - its an add-in for producing Adobe PDF from office documents which gets installed with a PDF writer.

- do you mean 'in general' or 'in my workplace'

If you have Acrobat Professional you should have an Acrobat Tab as I do with Acrobat 8 Pro and Office 2007 Pro.  See jpeg.
If you have both and no tab click on the Office ball at the top and then the Excel Options and Add-Ins menu

Hi

You should check whether these systems have a PDF Writer such as Acrobat installed. If they do, in 2007 you need to press the Office Orb and Go to 'Excel options' then 'Add-ins'

This will show you the Active and In-Active add-ins. See whether the PDF add-n is active, if not go to the 'Manage' dropdown menu at the bottom and select ' Excel add-ins' press 'Go' and put a tick mark if there is a PDF add in available.

if not you have to install a PDF maker for your version of Office.

Hi, Guch23.

There are lots of packages that provide PDF functionality in Excel. Please show us a screenshot of the PDF option that you referred to and let us know what it does.

Thanks,
