Printing Problem for Excel Workbooks with Multiple Worksheets Using Acrobat
If you are experiencing problems printing all of the worksheets
in a Microsoft Excel workbook to one PDF file using Adobe Acrobat,
the problem is likely caused by a variation in the "print quality"
setting for the worksheets in the Excel workbook.
You can verify this is the source of the problem by clicking
"File", then selecting "Page Setup" in Excel. With the "Page" tab
selected, you will see the "Print Quality"
setting for the currently selected worksheet. Let's say it
is "300 dpi". But if you select the second worksheet titled "Page 2", when
you take the same steps to view the print quality setting and don't see
the print quality specified or it is different, then the variation in
print quality settings is the source of the problem.
When the print quality settings vary between worksheets in the workbook,
Adobe Acrobat will attempt to create multiple PDF files, one for each
worksheet in the workbook, which is why it will prompt you multiple times
for a file name. If you enter different filenames at each prompt, it will
put each worksheet in a separate file.
To rectify the problem, make the print quality settings the same for each
worksheet. In the case above, you could specify a print quality setting
of 300 dpi for the "Page 2" worksheet as well.
You can change the print quality settings one by one for each worksheet
in the workbook or you can select all of the worksheets at once by
holding down the Ctrl key while clicking on the tabs at the bottom of the Excel
window for the other worksheets one by one to select all of them, if you are working on
a Windows system (you would use the Shift key on an Apple system).
When all the worksheets are selected,
you can release the Ctrl key then click on "File" and "Page Setup"
to specify the print quality settings for all of the worksheets at once.
The minimum dpi for a laser printer is normally 300 dpi and is
probably adquate for most spreadsheets you will print. Adobe uses
600 dpi as the default setting for Adobe Acrobat and Distiller and
recommends that setting, but you can make the setting whatever you
like. The output you will get when printing will depend on whether
the printer selected can actually support the dpi value you've
Once, you have set the print quality settings to be the same for
all worksheets, take the following steps to print the workbook.
- Click on "File".
- Select "Print".
- Select "Adobe PDF" as the printer.
- In the "Print what" section, select "Entire workbook".
You should now have one PDF file containing all of the worksheets.
More than one PDF file is created from an Excel workbook (Acrobat 5.0-6.x on Windows or Mac OS)
