I have printing issue on PDF files converted from Excel files via doPDF.

I made tables which had characters and colored in background on Excel file.

After converting that file to PDF and printing it, I found that PDF files shows only a frame of table and didn’t show any characters.


It was successful when I tried from reconverting.


After that, I tried it many times but the same problem didn’t happen.


I don’t know why the problem happened only once.


Do doPDF users have any ideas what happened on that time?

Maybe it was a small bug on how the images were referenced by excel, and when you reload it the problem went away. doPDF prints exactly as when you do it via a physical printer, so most likely it was something in excel.

Thank you for your answer. I 'm thinking the same thing as something has happened on Excel file.
Can you guess what happened on that file? I would be happy if you have any notes or hints.

I have a problem with printing PDF files from Excel using doPDF. My Excel file contains in one column a list of links to web sites. About one in 10 of these web addresses end up with the characters from the preceding columns of the following line of the file appended to them, making the links unrecognisable. The following line still has those characters in the right place. Very strange.

I did a newsletter in Microsoft word 2010 and tried to convert to PDF file, but when it converted it separated my text into several different columns. Also I want to do several pages with the first and last page different. The first page I want in two columns and the others in 3 columns. All of these will be landscape, but the last page I want portrait. How can I do this and keep all the pages together?

Thanks,
Jo Anne
