Its interface is lucid and straightforward: You choose the original and resulting file formats, then select the file to convert, enter your email address and hit the Convert Now button. Awesome, isn't it?

The 1st workbook was converted to PDF faultlessly, the 2nd workbook was also converted without any errors, but the first letter in one word was truncated: Alas, nothing is perfect in this world It lets you choose the vertical or horizontal sheet scaling, paper size and orientation as well as whether to show Excel grids in the resulting PDF file or not.
Someone may think the problem is with my original Excel documents. I agree, the second workbook has quite a sophisticated custom format. This is because my purpose was to perform some sort of "stress testing" to reveal the real potential of PDF to Excel online converters since your actual workbooks may be far more complex and sophisticated in terms of contents and format.
For the sake of experiment, I converted both test workbooks to PDF using Excel's Save As dialog and it coped with the task absolutely fine - the resulting PDF files were the exact replicas of the original Excel documents.
