  • 1.  Convert Excel to PDF with pagesetup options

    Posted 11-21-2023 16:04

    Hey guys

    I'm trying to convert excel file to pdf with specific page setup options (orientation and scaling).

    I use this code, but it converts to pdf without paying attention to the options.

    Dim wb as Object = GetWorkbook(handle, workbookname)
    Dim excel as Object = wb.Application
    Dim xlTypePDF As Integer = 0
    excel.DisplayAlerts = False
    wb.ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat (xlTypePDF, filename)
    With wb.ActiveSheet.PageSetup
            .Orientation = 2
            .Zoom = False
            .FitToPagesWide = 1
    End With
    excel.DisplayAlerts = True
    Any idea?
    Thanks a lot

    Hi @Frédéric Hubin

    Try setting the page setup options before exporting to PDF. Let me know if that works for you.
