#2: How to Export PDF from Excel to Acrobat
This too is not a complicated method, but you need to be familiar with Excel first. So if you are not, first read the simple user guides of Excel and then venture to perform this task.
The task is explained in the steps below:
Step 1. Open Microsoft Excel and open an Excel Spreadsheet.
Step 2. Go to the toolbar and click on “File”.
Step 3. Next, click the “Export” option from the drop-down menu and choose “Create PDF/XPS” option.

Step 5. Now click the “Publish” button and instantly the entire system will switch back to the Acrobat mode, and your worksheet will be shown as an Acrobat PDF file.
Step 6. Go to “File” button and choose “Save as” from the context menu. browse to the target folder where you wish to save the file if necessary. Type a name if you wish. And choose the “Save as Type” option with “Adobe PDF files”.

So you see, the conversions were not that difficult to pull off. And now since you know how to do that, it will be easier for you to edit your PDF file data on the Excel platform or to convert Excel data back to PDF format.
But again and again, I am reminding you the same thing—Both the software should be upgraded or at least the versions should be of the same level. Otherwise, there could be a cross-compatibility issue and the conversion will not be possible since one of the software remains outdated and the other one is upgraded.
