How to convert xlsx to PDF/A-1a


I wonder how to convert xlsx to PDF/A-1a format - as I see there is no PdfA1a option in enum Aspose.Cells.Rendering.PdfCompliance - it has only PdfA1b case.

Could you please add the option or explain how to perform the conversion another way?

Note, that Aspose.Words has the same option Aspose.Words.Saving.PdfCompliance.PdfA1a.

Best Regards,



Thanks for your posting and considering Aspose.Cells.

This issue has already been logged as

  • CELLSNET-41365 - PDF/A-1a compliance - PdfSaveOptions

We are afraid, it is quite an old issue (Date: Jan 2013), so it seems, this feature will not be supported anytime soon. Or probably, it will not be supported at all. Once, there is some news for you, we will update you asap.

Hi again.

If possible for now, you may consider using Aspose.Cells APIs to first convert Excel workbook to PDF format and then use Aspose.Pdf APIs to convert it to PDF/A1a format for your needs.

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.
