Excel 2007 File Save as PDF bug

Discussion in 'Microsoft Excel Misc' started by Excel 2007 File Save as PDF bug, Jun 30, 2009.

  1. Hello
    I have an Excel sheet with Graphs. Pinting it, it all comes out fine. Also,
    using PDF printers it all comes out fine. When I use File, save as PFD
    format, the graphs are not shown correctly : the size of the graphs are far
    to big.
    Seems to be a bug in the File save as PDF format function of Excel.
    Can anyone confim this?
    Thanks Felix

    I am having the same issue. Seemed to pop up around SP2. Luckily I have the
    full Adobe Acrobat so I can print via the pdf printer, but I have found it
    does not work with the free pdf printers on line. Looks the same as when you
    save as a pdf in Excel. I have posted pictures via Flickr.

    UPDATE: I have found a free print to pdf driver that works. PrimoPDF can be
    found at download.com.

    Same issue here. I've been troubleshooting for two days. Has anyone
    had luck with a workaround? I saw one mention of a driver download
    but have not tried it yet.
