Click OK. You will be prompted to choose the location for your exported spreadsheet.

Set Print Area

You can set the print area for a section that will carry over to your XLSX export.

Click and drag in your workbook section to select the cells to set the print area on. Click the Print Area button on the File tab. It will display the cells you've selected. Choose Set if the selection is correct. You can also Hide the selection from here, or Clear it if you're done with it.

Alternately, you can select the XLSX Export tab from the Section Properties menu (available via the right-click menu on the section name) or from the File Tab, by clicking the Properties button, and choosing Section Properties.

You can manually enter in the cell range in the Current Print Area box or use the Set Print Area to Current Selection. Selecting the Set Print Area to Current Selection will use the previously selected cell range as the print area.

The set print area will be visible in the workbook by a dotted line surrounding the selected cells.

NOTE: Setting the print area does not allow you to actually print the workbook from within the application. It is merely for the XLSX exports.

Save a Workbook as PDF

To save a Workbook as a PDF, navigate to the File tab and click Save As, then choose PDF. Workbooks with content that does not fit on a single page will generate left to right, then down. You can change the Print Area of the PDF in Section Properties.
