Creating PDFA1A Compliance PDF files from existing PDF files using aspose.cells code

Adobe acrobat has a feature to create the PDFA1A complaint documents from the existing PDF document. This can be achieved by "Save As..." command of the "File" menu of the Adobe Acrobat.

We are creating PDF document from Excel files using Aspose.cells. Aspose.Cells can only create with PDFA1B compliance. There is no Save option for PDFA1A in the Aspose.Cells. Is there any way to convert these files to PDFA1A compliant PDF files from these already generated files?


I am afraid, currently Aspose.Cells does not support rendering to PDF/A-1a compliance. We have already logged a ticket for it with an id “CELLSNET-41365” for your feature request. Your request has already been linked to the appropriate issue (“CELLSNET-41365”).

Once we have any update on it, we will let you know here.

And to create PDFA1a from existing PDF documents, you may post a query into Aspose.Pdf forum, they will help you soon there.

Thank you.

Could you please let me know when it can be available in Aspose.cells?


I am afraid, we might not be able to support this feature in near future. Anyways, if we have any update on it or have an eta on it, we will let you know here.

Thank you.


This is to inform you that we plan to support it (“PDF/A-1a compliance”) in Q2, 2017.

Thank you.

Please try our latest version/fix: Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.4.1:

Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.4.1 (.NET 2.0) compiled in .NET Framework 2.0.
Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.4.1 (.NET 4.0) compiled in .NET Framework 4.0.
(Note: please choose any of the fixes for your underlying .NET framework version).

We have supported PDF/A-1a in it.
Sample code:

Workbook wb = new Workbook(srcFile);

PdfSaveOptions pdfOpt = new PdfSaveOptions();

pdfOpt.Compliance = PdfCompliance.PdfA1a;

wb.Save("outFile.pdf", pdfOpt);

Let us know your feedback.

Thank you.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as CELLSNET-41365) have been fixed in Aspose.Cells for .NET 17.5.
