Thread: Print to PDF-PDFCreator to Adobe PDF

    Print to PDF-PDFCreator to Adobe PDF

    I need some help modifying my current code. I would like the code to activate the "Adobe PDF" print driver instead of the "PDFCreator". Any ideas?

    Hello helpme, and welcome to the forum.

    The PDFCreator code that you've found on my site will not work with Adobe. Adobe has it's own set of libraries which have different properties and methods than PDFCreator.

    I'm curious what version/suite of Adobe's products you are using... do you currently have a PDF writing software installed? (Such as Distiller, or Acrobat Pro)

    What version of Excel are you using?

    Hmm...

    Okay, this is going to take a little digging. I wasn't prepared to pay Adobe's outrageous price, which is why I've never written any code for their product. I'll see if I can find any, but I can't really test it for you. (PDFCreator is a free download and works, which is why I went that way.)

    Sorry for the late reply on this... I'm hoping it fits into the category of "better late than never". Here's an article I found today on automating Adobe 9: http://www.igetit.net/samplecode/Exc..._vba_code.aspx
