Export Excel file to PDF

If you want to automate the conversion from XLS to PDF, then PowerShell provides a very straight forward way to do it.  Create an Excel object, load the XLS file, write to PDF.


$xlFixedFormat = “Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.xlFixedFormatType” -as [type] 

$excel = New-Object -ComObject excel.application
$workbook = $excel.workbooks.open($InputFileName, 3)
$workbook.Saved = $true
$workbook.ExportAsFixedFormat($xlFixedFormat::xlTypePDF, $OutputFileName)

You then run the code with two parameters, source file, and destination file.
