Hyerlinks are not restored after the conversion of the Excel form to pdf format

Can you tell if there is any way to restore the hyperlinks present in the Excel form after i've converted it to a pdf?? I've tried all possibilites, but since the xsl has got some 40 pages in it, doing the hyperlinks manually is not a very good idea!! I'm using Adobe Professional 8.0 (full version) and also having office 2002. Can you guide me ASAP, since work needs to be completed ugegently.
Thanks in advance!

There is no way to restore back to normal since you already converted it to pdf. Next time you need to have a backup of your file before finalizing your work to be done.

Hoping for such approval to make my rate solved.

Hyperlink other document in excel button

The easy way (but labor intensive) is to put the file names in a column (can be any name you want or the pdf file name), right click on a cell, hit insert hyperlink, and in the address field at bottom, put in the file pdf file name. You would have to do this for each of your 100 files.

If you want to automate it, create a column with the directory path name, a 2nd column with the full file names, a 3rd column where you concatenate the two previous columns to create the full path, and then use the hyperlink command to provide the link:

Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf ../excel/file1.pdf file1.pdf ../excel/ file2.pdf ../excel/file2.pdf file2.pdf ../excel/ file3.pdf ../excel/file3.pdf file3.pdf

Here are the formulas behind this:
A B C D Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf =CONCATENATE(A2,B2) =HYPERLINK((C2),B2)
../excel/ file2.pdf =CONCATENATE(A3,B3) =HYPERLINK((C3),B3)
../excel/ file3.pdf =CONCATENATE(A4,B4) =HYPERLINK((C4),B4)
This should work like a charm and the other advantage is that excel won't rename your path locally depending on weather a file is open or not).

I want to copy an Excel chart as a Image onto a PowerPoint Slide (Office 2007). What is the sequence of APIs to apply?

Copy worksheet data to a PowerPoint presentation
  1. In Excel, select the worksheet data that you want to copy to a PowerPoint presentation.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Copy za006044679.gif.


Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+C.

  1. Click in the PowerPoint presentation where you want to paste the copied worksheet data.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Paste.

Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+V.

  1. Click Paste Options za006043532.gif next to the data, and then do one of the following:
    • To use the original format of the copied data, click Keep Source Formatting.
    • To use the document theme that is applied to the PowerPoint presentation, click Use Destination Theme.
    • To paste table data that you copied as text, click Keep Text Only.


  • If you don't see the Paste Options button, you may have to turn it on. Click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, and then click PowerPoint Options. In the Advanced category, under Cut, Copy, and Paste, select the Show Paste Options buttons check box.
  • If you paste the data into a PowerPoint table, the Paste Options button is not displayed.
  • To paste the data in another format (such as a worksheet object, HTML format, bitmap, picture, or to text format) or to paste a link to the source data in Excel, on the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste Special. In the As list, click the format that you want to use.
    • If you want to edit the entire worksheet later, click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object. Clicking Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object provides access to the entire worksheet in the presentation, including data that you may want to keep private. To automatically update the table in the presentation when changes are made to the source data in Excel, click Paste link. Both of these options also preserve the Excel formatting, even when the formatting features that are used are not supported in PowerPoint. If you saved the source workbook before you copied the data, you can also click Attach Hyperlink to insert a hyperlink in your presentation that directs you to the source data in Excel.
    • To paste the content as an Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) (OLE: A program-integration technology that you can use to share information between programs. All Office programs support OLE, so you can share information through linked and embedded objects.) PowerPoint application icon (rather than pasting the actual content), click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object, and then select the Display as icon check box. You can click the icon to open the application and then view the content.
    • If you want to use HTML to copy the data to PowerPoint into a PowerPoint table, click HTML format.
    • To paste a static picture, click Device Independent Bitmap or Bitmap, or to paste a picture that can be ungrouped, click Picture (Enhanced Metafile) or Picture (Windows Metafile).
    • To paste the data as formatted or unformatted text, click Formatted Text (RTF) or Unformatted Text.
  • To paste the data as a hyperlink that directs you to the source data in Excel, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste As Hyperlink. If the workbook that contains the source data has not been saved yet, this option is unavailable.
  • If you want the range of data that you paste as a Microsoft Excel Worksheet Object into a PowerPoint presentation to expand when the corresponding data expands on the Excel worksheet, you can define a name (name: A word or string of characters that represents a cell, range of cells, formula, or constant value. Use easy-to-understand names, such as Products, to refer to hard to understand ranges, such as Sales!C20:C30.) for the range of data in Excel before you copy the data. You can then paste a link to the named range by using the Paste Special command. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, click Paste Special, and then click Paste link. This works only when you copy data that is not in table format in Excel.

Unable to convert into a Word document. It just opens a blank document. What is wrong?

The easiest way to convert a word document to .pdf is to simply right-click on the file to see if there is an option to "convert to .pdf"., then left-click on that option.

Hope this helps. :)

1. You can do it by-inserting a hyperlink and from the "insert hyperlink" window, select "place in this document" from the "Link to" pane. Then you can select desired destination sheet

2. First from unlock all cells from the format-protection menu.
then lock only those cells which you want to restrict access to the users.
then if you are using Office 2007, from the "review" tab select "protect sheet" then uncheck "Select locked cells" check box.
click ok then you are done.
