I have a spreadsheet that does not convert to pdf the header is there, but the data is missing? Can you provide a patch to your tool? or is there a command line flag that will make it work?

Hi John

Can you raise an issue over at including:

– What type of spreadsheet it is (.xls, .xlsx, .xlsm, .ods, etc.)
– What command line options you’re running OfficeToPDF with
– What version of Office you’re using
– What Operating System you’re using
– Whether other spreadsheets convert, or if all spreadsheets fail
– Whether the data is pulled from a linked spreadsheet
– If there are macros in the spreadsheet, what they are doing
– If possible, an example spreadsheet to test with

Without knowing more about the spreadsheet, it’s impossible for us to understand the issue you’re seeing.
