Excel to PDF .Net can be used to integrate XLS to PDF, Word-RTF capabilities in a web-based application, enterprise class server application, or desktop document management, archival, or word processing program. For example, the library can be used to automate the creation of PDF hard copies from Excel spreadsheets and workbooks, which are uploaded to the website via form based file upload, says Max Sautin, CEO of SautinSoft. We made the component easy to implement, so that the developer has to write only a few lines of code to add it to the application. This speeds up the development process considerably. In terms of stability, the library is also good – it can produce thousands of PDF conversions per day, without any user queuing, blocking, or other issues.
The component uses its own PDF conversion engine, which was developed to fully comply with the latest Adobe PDF specifications to produce PDF hard copies that look exactly like the XLS originals. The PDF output preserves full font and text formatting, hyperlinks, anchors, special characters, various cell types strings, numbers, dates, floating point, merged cells, row and cell width and height, formulas. Besides, spreadsheets with borders are exported to Adobe PDF tables, preserving colors, line type and background. The end-user of the application has full control over the output and can choose to convert an entire Excel workbook, or several selected spreadsheets, specify page parameters for PDF document, including page size, orientation, margins, and page numbers.
