How to Convert XLSX to PDF

Home > PDF Creating Tips > Convert XLSX to PDF

Spreadsheets are a cornerstone of any successful business, especially within the accounts department. Microsoft Excel, a member of the widely popular MS Office suite, is used by millions of people every day to create and edit spreadsheets. These are typically saved in XLS or XLSX format, which – despite the benefits – can be difficult to access across different hardware and software platforms. The solution? Convert XLSX to PDF format.

PDF is a free, cross-platform file format that can be accessed on multiple platforms, irrespective of the hardware or software differences. Plus, PDF files are usually agiler and easy to share, which makes them the most suitable file format for use within the office. So just how do you obtain clean, professional PDF files from your treasured XLSX files? In this post, we take a look at how you can accomplish this feat using two premium products from Wondershare. 

Method 1Convert XLSX to PDF with Wondershare PDFelement

Wondershare PDFelement has gained popularity over the years as a premium PDF tool, which can be attributed to its versatility and multi-functional design. It is used to perform a wide variety of functions on PDF documents, including viewing, editing, printing, and making all sorts of PDF modification on documents. Its popularity has also been attributed to its pace-setting OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature that allows the program to lift text from scanned files that have been saved in PDF.

Other useful functions of Wondershare PDFelement with regard to editing include the ability to add digital signatures, passwords, redactions, and permissions to PDF files, which helps make the files secure. Users also get to play with PDF documents by combining pages or complete documents, extracting or even inserting pages. You can further add and edit headers, footers, hyperlinks, bookmarks, watermarks, and use the bates numbering system that comes with the application.

Step 1. Upload the XLSX File

When Wondershare PDFelement launches, you can upload your file for conversion by selecting the "Create PDF" box on the application window. Alternatively, simply use the drag and drop feature on Mac and Windows computers to upload your file. It will detect the XLSX file(s) and begin conversion automatically.

Step 2. Save PDF File

A small window will appear with information on the progress of the conversion. When the process is complete, click "Finish" to commit the changes and save the file to finalize the process. Click "File" on the menu bar, select "Save As" to give your file an appropriate file name and click "Save".

Method 2Change XLSX to PDF with Wondershare PDF Converter Pro

Wondershare PDF Converter Pro is a PDF editing tool that lets you obtain quality PDF converts from native MS Office applications, web pages, and other file formats. However, unlike the former, PDF Converter Pro limits its functionality to two elements: PDF conversion and creation. This helps users to focus on the conversion business only and also means the application is tweaked for this purpose alone. Its fast and stable functionality also means you spend less time worrying about in-process crashes, which lets you concentrate on other important functions in the office.

Step 1. Import XLSX File

When you first launch the application, PDF Converter Pro launches to a simple interface with "Convert PDF" and "Create PDF" tabs. Select "Create PDF". You can either locate your file on the computer and drag-and-drop it onto the window or click the "Add Files" option to navigate through storage and select the XLSX file(s) for upload. Once the files have downloaded, you can change different settings, including the destination folder, whether to combine the files into a single PDF, or whether to convert the files as image-based PDF files.

Step 2. Change XLSX File to PDF

Once you are satisfied, click the "Create" button to convert your XLSX file(s). When the process completes, navigate to the destination folder to access the converted PDF file(s).
