Can someone please help me understand why the macro below outputs a PostScript file instead of a PDF file and if there is a way to tweak it such that it does what I expect it to do which is to print a PDF file, not a PostScript file. I would immensenly appreciate any help. Thank you.

VBA Code:
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(Array("Cover", "Cover Letter", "Proposal Letter", "Testimonials")).Select

'export to PDF
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut _
    PrintToFile:=True, _
    PrToFileName:="Test Excel Export.pdf", _
    ActivePrinter:="Adobe PDF", _
    IgnorePrintAreas:=False

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple
