Predefined Page Size

Postby MuleTrain » Tue Feb 07, 2017 1:24 pm

I have created an Excel report that I have set up to print 11x17. When I choose Print, doPDF, and save as a PDF file, I was hoping it would retain the settings. But when I open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Reader, it is defaulting to 8.5x11. Am I doing something wrong with the steps I am using? I thought I had read that doPDF would do predefined page sizes.

Hi Brad,

I'm using Excel 2003, but the process should be much the same for you in whatever version you're using.

These are the steps for me:

Page Setup
Options - which opens a doPDF dialog
Select 'Custom' and enter Width, Height, and Units
OK, and then 'Print' (or 'Print Preview' if you want to see how it looks)

That's it! Good luck, hope it works for you. :)
