When working with a spreadsheet on a Mac with Microsoft Excel, it is sometimes necessary to create a single PDF file from more than one sheet of a single spreadsheet. Tabs at the bottom of the page represent each sheet in an Excel spreadsheet. All Macs have the native ability to create a PDF file from any printable document, so you can easily export multiple sheets from a spreadsheet as one PDF.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch Microsoft Excel and open a spreadsheet that has multiple sheets.

  2. 2

    Click "File" from the Excel menu, then click "Print." The "Print" dialogue box appears.

  3. 3

    Click the "Entire Workbook" option" to select it. Click the "PDF" pull-down menu at the bottom of the dialogue box, then click "Save as PDF." The "Save" dialogue box appears.

  4. 4

    Type a name for the PDF file in the "Save As" box, then click the "Where" pull-down menu to select a folder on the Mac where you want to save the file.

  5. 5

    Click "Save." Excel saves the sheets as a single PDF file. Double-click the PDF to open it with Preview, Apple's native application for viewing PDF files.
