Windows 7: Excel export to PDF One Picture Limitation >?>! WHY

Excel export to PDF One Picture Limitation >?>! WHY

For years now I have used excel and adobe PDF together to export prices. Our price sheet has pictures in it and we export to a PDF file. Suddenly when I export to a PDF it neglects to put pictures in the exported PDF it will only export one Picture. I have tried this at home now on my windows at home and again I am now limited to one picture to be exported to a PDF file. This really puts a big squash on our workflow.
Would Adobe Acrobat suddenly limit the ability of acrobat to export pictures to a PDF and if so why ?

Hi DonM123,
Doesn't seem likely, especially paid version. Anything on Acrobat forum?
Excel has the export to PDF function built in.
In older versions it is save as type
Newer it is in Files, Export, create pdf/xps

Yeah, you should be able to export from Excel directly to PDF format. Not having to use the Adobe middle-man. Though, I don't use Microsoft Office or Adobe for that matter. My office application is Libre Office and my PDF software is PDF Xchange.

--Nerd speak ahead--

The great thing about PDF Xchange is that if you open a PDF that has external links that try to make an outbound connection it will inform you and ask. This is great in case the PDF is embedded with a canary token.

What's a canary token? Just a little bit of code that can read your IP, etc. You can even get them in the form of images or HTML in an email. That's one reason why I never parse HTML in emails or load pictures by default in emails in my email client Thunderbird. And since I use PGP, you never want to allow HTML formatted email as there is a vulnerability that can read your PGP private key. Yes, the emails will look like absolute crap, but it's better than being hacked or getting a malware infection.

Alternatively there's this option, but it's not what you'd use for private company stuff. Excel to PDF - Convert Excel to PDF Online for free

You need to purchase acrobat DC from adobe before you can save your documents in PDF format. If you have acrobat showing up in your excel install its because you have acrobat DC PRO purchased and installed. For some reason the selection that I saved as PDF would not retain its pictures. It did this on my excel at home and at work. I was however to print to a PDF file. That worked but it makes me nervous that suddenly the PDF save option stopped working after using it all these years. It just leaves the photos next to the prices out.

Did you try repairing or reinstalling either or both Adobe & Office.
Quite a few programs, Office for one, has a repair function in the programs and features when you click on it as you would to uninstall, you have a repair option. Quite often as with Windows, a file or a few become corrupt or the links thereto and well..., things don't work as they did for years!

My understanding is if you buy Acrobat and install it then you can use it to covert to PDF. I will try this other way that is built in. So I used that other method and it drops the pictures.
