We have taken the two folder path on excel worksheet (on Sheet1)

  • Excel Folder Path: On cell E13, we have taken Excel Folder Path wherein multiple excel files are available.
  • PDF Folder Path: On cell E14, we have taken PDF Folder Path wherein PDF file will be stored after the conversion.

Below is the VBA code to convert Excel to PDF

Sub Excel_To_PDF()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Application.DisplayStatusBar = True

Dim sh As Worksheet

Set sh = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")

Dim fso As New FileSystemObject

Dim fo As Folder

Dim f As File

Dim wb As Workbook

Dim n As Integer

Set fo = fso.GetFolder(sh.Range("E13").Value)

For Each f In fo.Files


        n = n + 1

       Application.StatusBar = "Processing..." & n & "/" & fo.Files.Count

       Set wb = Workbooks.Open(f.Path)

       wb.ExportAsFixedFormat xlTypePDF, sh.Range("E14").Value & Application.PathSeparator & VBA.Replace(f.Name, ".xlsx", ".pdf")
