Excel to PDF .Net History -
July 24th, 2017.

We are happy to offer you the new «Excel to PDF .Net» 4.2! Let's see what's new:

  • First of all, we have significantly updated the algorithm which processes and converts the "Cell Formatting". As a rule of thumb, most of Excel workbooks contains a lot of various cell formatting: currency, date and time, fraction and so forth.

    It is worth pointing out that the new algorithm became much tidy:
