We use Microsoft Office 2010.

Basically one of our computers is not able to 'Save As' a PDF correctly. I have already checked for updates and everything seems to be up to date but when I try to save the Excel file as a PDF it looks like this. All other computers can work with the Excel file and save as a PDF perfectly. Any ideas on what is wrong?

While we wait for an image, does the problem computer use an old version of Adobe? or a non-Adobe product?  Office 2010 needs Adobe V10 to work well.

On the problem computer try repairing both Office and Adobe from Control Panel, Programs and Features.

Thanks for the image. Try my suggestions above. I have not seen that kind of output from a PDF conversion.

What version of Adobe are you using?  Also have you checked your add-ins in your Excel? Have you verified the Acrobat PDFMaker Office Com Addin is not disabled?  I would try removing it and then add it back in.

You need V10 or better for PDF creator to integrate with Office 2010.
