Export to PDF - Footer page number issue


I'm trying to export a workbook to pdf format using the following code:

Workbook.Save(path, SaveFormat.Pdf);

All the worksheets in my workbook have page numbers in the footer, but they are not visible in the pdf file.

How can I fix that?

Thank you.


Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells for .NET.

Please download and use the latest version: Aspose.Cells
for .NET v7.3.5.1
and see if it makes any difference.

Aspose.Cells for .NET will generate the PDF same like as Ms-Excel generates or as you view in Print Preview.

So, if your page numbers are not visible in the Excel Print Preview, these will also not be visible in Aspose.Cells output pdf.

If you still find any issue, please provide us your source file. We will look into your issue and help you asap.

Besides, we have lately done some major enhancements and added new features in our product, so you should also download and give a try to latest offline demos of Aspose.Cells which you can find from theses links.

These demos can work with Visual Studio 2005, 2008 or 2010. Please read the readme.txt file before running the demos.


Thank you for the reply.

I tried the same code with the latest version you provided, and I'm still having the same issue.

Here are the sample files: the excel sheet, the pdf file I got using aspose and the pdf file obtained saving the file as pdf using excel.

The print preview looks exactly like the pdf file generated by excel. (ExcelOutput.pdf).

The file generated by Aspose doesn't show the page numbers. (AsposeOutput.pdf)

This pdf was generated using the code mentioned above:

Workbook.Save(path, SaveFormat.Pdf)

Any help?

Thank you.

Hi Amjad,

Thank you for your help and support.

I'm also having some issues when exporting workbooks with charts to excel.

I created two other topics in the forum:

<a href="</a></p><p>I really need these issues fixed for the project I'm currently working on.</p><p> </p><p>Thank you.</p>

Just some extra information, I'm having other issues related to charts when they are exported to pdf, but most of my problems are similar to those reported on the two topics I mentioned above.

Basically my problems are with the charts appearance when exported to pdf, they look different than they are in the workbook.

I would really appreciate if you could give me some feedback regarding these topics.

Thank you.
