I have the below code set up to take an excel tab and save is as a PDF file. As an Excel tab, I have the page set up the way I want. However, when I export it as a PDF, the settings are gone. It automattically makes is legal and portrait, as opposed to letter and lanscape. Below is my code.

Rich (BB code):
Sub ExportSheet1()
Sheets("Sheet1").ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= _
    "S:\Business Analysis\Sheet1.pdf", Quality:= _
    xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=True, IgnorePrintAreas:=False, _
    OpenAfterPublish:=False
End Sub


At this point, I would settle for being able to simple open each PDF and save the formatting. I can't even do that. The only way is for each person to manually change each pdf to letter/landscape before they print.

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.
