Thanks for providing us some details.

Could you provide us your template Excel file here, we will evaluate your issue soon.

Thank you.

Hi, I am using the same file which came with the aspose example package. I have tried out the following options to fix the issue as prescribed in your forum. Please find the code that I am using to convert the EXCEL to PDF

public class Excel2PDFConversion {

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

// The path to the documents directory.

//Properties props = System.getProperties();

//props.setProperty(“com.aspose.cells.fontdir”, “C://Windows//Fonts”);

System.setProperty(“java.awt.headless”, “true”);


String dataDir = Utils.getSharedDataDir(Excel2PDFConversion.class) + “loading_saving/”;

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(dataDir + “Book1.xls”);

// Save the document in PDF format

workbook.save(dataDir + “E2PDFC-out.pdf”, SaveFormat.PDF);

// Print message

System.out.println(“Excel to PDF conversion performed successfully.”);




I tried your exact code using your template file with (Aspose.Cells for Java (Latest Version) please try it. It works absolutely fine, the output PDF file is attached for your reference.

I am using JDK1.7 on Windows 8. We will try to test it on JDK1.8 as well. But could you try on some other machine with JDK1.6/1.7 if you still see the issue.

Thank you.
