Workbook save to pdf/a option not available in java

WorkBook book = new WorkBook(“C:/temp.xls”);

book.save(“C:/TestResults/temp.pdf”,new PdfSaveOptions());

This particular code complains that save does not have a method signature with SaveOptions as second parameter. I have aspose cells 7.6.1 on my classpath.

Does the evaluation version not allow conversion to pdf/a ??


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

Please try the following code. It creates a workbook object from a source file and save in the pdf format after setting the compliance to PDF/A1b.

There is no limitation in the evaluation version except that it adds a watermark text in the output pdf pages.


String filePath = “F:\Shak-Data-RW\Downloads\Test.xls”;

Workbook book = new Workbook(filePath);

PdfSaveOptions opts = new PdfSaveOptions();


book.save(filePath + “.out.pdf”, opts);

It did create the file as pdf/a-1b. But when I verify its conformance with adobes preflight it fails.

So the file is not truly complaint.


Thanks for your feedback and using Aspose.Cells.

Please provide us your source workbook which you are converting to pdf and the screenshots showing the adobe preflight getting failed while verifying the conformance.

We will then log this issue for investigation in our database so that it could be fixed asap.

Attached is the orignal xls and the corressponding pdf/a report as well.
