I have a price list on an Excel worksheet.  It has a defined print area, custom Header and Footer.  

How can I automate this sequence when someone prints the worksheet?

1. Auto-save a copy of the active worksheet print area as a PDF in the folder the parent Excel file resides.  Prefix the PDF file name with YYYYMMDD

2. Open it in Acrobat
