    I've created an Excel file that contains hyperlinks to webpages that I created using the =HYPERLINK function.

    I have access to Adobe Acrobat and I can easily convert the Excel file to a .pdf file but the links don't work in the .pdf file. I'm searching through the help section of Adobe Acrobat but I'm not finding much help there.

    Does anyone know if there is a simple way to do this? Thanks.

    I have the excact same problem. I have an excel file containing html hyperlinks (hidden). They work perfectly in excel, but when doing a pdf-print the files become unclickable (but still underlined and blue).

    I have found one solution, and that is to use the 3 buttons included in the acrobat reader package (that is the 3 menu toolbar buttons installed in excel). These however cannot be used with vba (I have been told by officials with Acrobat) - so I'm looking for a new pdf printer, that automatically saves hidden hyperlinks.

    Does anyone know of such? I has to be able to keep the hidden hyperlink after pdf creation with excel;
