Can Excel 2010 Save as PDF the Same Way Mac 2011 Does?

In Mac 2011, the use can have multiple work sheets open.  They can do  File -> Save As   Type PDF, then entire workbook, and the result is that each work sheet is saved as a separate PDF. The Title of each PDF is the what is chosen in the Save Dialog box, with the work sheet name added.

This process cannot be duplicated with the Office 2010 they are running on Windows XP.

Can 2010 do this?  If not, can 2013 or Office 365 ?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I believe the "File/Save" command will let you save a file as a PDF in all versions of Excel 2010.  Simply use the "Save As Type" pull down list to change it to type PDF.

The File/Save as type is available, however, the worksheets are not saved as individual PDF files.

I have 2010 at the minute and just trying the Save As and choose PDF under the file type menu.

There is then an Options button and the Window that pops up gives option of Entire Workbook.

Taking its time and will post back shortly.

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

Hmmm... I tried the "Entire Workbook" option too, and it just created a very large PDF file, as if it "printed" all pages.

I also tried this with Adobe, and I don't see that option either. I do like the SAve As "HTML" option, as the tabs are saved in a web format, but this is not what the original poster was looking for either...

I'm stumped!
Rob HensonFinance AnalystCommented:
Didn't come back to this, my attempt at Saving as PDF using Entire workbook crashed and didn't create anything.

Maybe the feature came in with 2011 version for Mac. I have 2013 at home so will try that if I get chance later.
