[VeryDOC Release Notes] VeryDOC Releases a new version of doc2any SDK today

Hi,

I ultimately made it working and converting on server 2012.

However i have two conversion issues:

1. some xls/xlsx files with big amount of columns give as an output pdf with the columns printed on multiple pages. My users want to have all columns fit single PDF page.

2. Some users sent binary Excel files (XLSB) - converter gives an error.

Please advise.

Customer
---------------------------------
Thanks for your information, just a question, how did you got it working on Windows Server 2012?

1. You can choose A3 landscape paper size when convert xls/xlsx to PDF file, the output PDF file will be good to fit all excel columns.
2. Our product is not support XLSB format, we will add the support for XLSB for you asap.

VeryDOC
---------------------------------
I found out on 2012 server by default windows service cannot communicate with office com components. I made DCOM configuration for Word and Excel to allow windows service user to launch office components. Then some system folders required additional security setting for the windows service user.

I spent many hours drilling ProcMonitor output to find out this.

What about xls/xlsx with big number of columns? Landscape not always a case. It could not be enough in some cases. Is there any parameter (something like fit_to_page or so) to always fit the PDF page regardless of column numbers?

Customer
---------------------------------
There is no fit_to_page option, you need to choose a bigger paper size to fit page contents, such as A0 paper size.

VeryDOC
---------------------------------
Another question: there is a "lib" folder in "doc2any" with 7z and some more files. What that files for? Do i have to deploy them?

Customer
---------------------------------
The files in "lib" folder are used to parse DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX formats without depend on MS Office and OpenOffice.

They will do the conversion work without MS Office and OpenOffice installed. If you will install MS Office into your system for conversion, you needn't the files in "lib" folder.

Converting Office Documents to PDF with the Office Interop Assemblies

Office, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013, Office Interop Assemblies, PDF Conversion, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013

image

If you want to convert a document to PDF you can save it as PDF (File -> Export -> PDF). But what if you have a lot of documents you want to convert to PDF. Then the Office Interop Assemblies could help you. This blog explains how you could use the Office Interop Assemblies to convert Word, PowerPoint and Excel files to PDF.

Prerequisites:
– Microsoft Office needs to be installed
– Some dev skills

This is not something you would like to use on a large production environment. But if you are in need of a onetime solution this could be a solution. Always keep in mind that you backup your Office documents and check the results after converting.

Word

Add Assembly reference to project: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word

Code:

var wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application();

var wordDocument = wordApp.Documents.Open(@"C:\WordDocument.docx");

          

wordDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat(@"C:\NewPDFFile.PDF", Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdExportFormat.wdExportFormatPDF);

 

wordDocument.Close(Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdSaveOptions.wdDoNotSaveChanges,

                   Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdOriginalFormat.wdOriginalDocumentFormat,

                   false); //Close document

 

wordApp.Quit(); //Important: When you forget this Word keeps running in the background

 

 

PowerPoint

Add Assembly reference to project: Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint

Code:

var powerpointApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.Application();

 

var powerpointDocument = powerpointApp.Presentations.Open(@"C:\PowerPoint.pptx",

                Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue, //ReadOnly

                Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoFalse, //Untitled

                Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoFalse); //Window not visible during converting

         

powerpointDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat(@"C:\NewPDFFile.pdf",

                Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.PpFixedFormatType.ppFixedFormatTypePDF);

 

powerpointDocument.Close(); //Close document

powerpointApp.Quit(); //Important: When you forget this PowerPoint keeps running in the background

 

Excel

Add assembly reference to project: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel

Code:

var excelApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application();

 

var excelDocument = excelApp.Workbooks.Open(@"C:\ExcelDocument.xlsx");

 

excelDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat(Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlFixedFormatType.xlTypePDF,

                                  @"C:\NewPDFFile.pdf");

 

excelDocument.Close(false, "", false); //Close document

excelApp.Quit(); //Important: When you forget this Excel keeps running in the background

 

VeryDOC has "DOC to Any Converter Command Line" and "DOC to Any Converter SDK/COM" products, these products are support Office Interop Assemblies and other technologies, you can use "DOC to Any Converter" Command Line or SDK/COM to convert office files to PDF files with or without MS Office installed in your system,

http://www.verydoc.com/doc-to-any.html

You can call "DOC to Any Converter Command Line" or "DOC to Any Converter SDK/COM" product to convert office files to PDF files from C#, PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, Javascript, VBScript, C++, VB, Delphi, FoxPro, Java, etc. program languages,

Do you have an API software solution we could try in order to convert our PDF's to a clean PS or Postscript file?

Hi there,

We are a printing solutions company who has their own bespoke software for printing our documents.

We are considering converting all of our documents to a more viewable PDF format.

However for printing we are looking for a PostScript solution, do you have an API software solution we could try in order to convert our PDF's to a clean PS file.

We have used GhostScript in the past and for many documents it produced files which printed too slowly for our needs.

If you could let me know I would be most grateful.

Thanks.

Please download PDF to Vector Converter Command Line from following web page to try, you can use PDF to Vector Converter Command Line to convert PDF file to PS file quickly,

http://www.verydoc.com/pdf-to-vector.html
http://www.verydoc.com/pdf2vec_cmd.zip

for example,

pdf2vec.exe -psmode 0 C:\in.pdf C:\out.ps
pdf2vec.exe -psmode 1 C:\in.pdf C:\out.ps
pdf2vec.exe -psmode 2 C:\in.pdf C:\out.ps

VeryDOC
----------------------------------------------
Thanks for this.

My initial testing is showing some good output.

To give you some background we produce PDF output but have limited print options unless we convert the files to PS, we still need to use PCL drivers.

So far this solution looks good.

I have a few questions.

1. Can we select a number of pages (a page range) rather than produce the entire PDF to PS?

2. It seems as though using pdf2vec.exe -psmode 2 gives us the best output -psmode 0 seems to be producing huge PS and the output is erratic when sent to a printer and -psmode 1 seems to produce just one page does this sound correct for what we are trying to do?

Thanks so far for your help.

Best regards
Customer
----------------------------------------------
>>1. Can we select a number of pages (a page range) rather than produce the entire PDF to PS?

-firstpage <int> : first page to print, from 1 to max page
-lastpage <int> : last page to print, from 1 to max page

You can run following command line to select a number of pages (a page range) from PDF file to PS file,

pdf2vec.exe -psmode 0 -firstpage 10 -lastpage 20 E:\pagetest.pdf E:\pagetest.ps

pdf2vec.exe -psmode 1 -firstpage 10 -lastpage 20 E:\pagetest.pdf E:\pagetest.ps

pdf2vec.exe -psmode 2 -firstpage 10 -lastpage 20 E:\pagetest.pdf E:\pagetest.ps

>>2. It seems as though using pdf2vec.exe -psmode 2 gives us the best output psmode 0 seems to be producing huge PS and the output is erratic when sent to a printer and psmode 1 seems to produce just one page does this sound correct for what we are trying to do?

Yes, "-psmode 1" does create a PS file for each PDF page, you can write a simple script to send these PS files to target printer one by one.

"-psmode 0" and "-psmode 2" are all can convert PDF files to PS files quickly and properly, they are using different render technologies to convert PDF files to Postscript files.

You can test the output PS files carefully by these options, if you need any assistance, please feel free to let us know, we will assist you asap.
