I think the best solution is to use a tool/library. The PDF format is complicated. You don't want to deal with it in your own code. The tools do use the "official format" for Excel and PDF.

Which tool did you try? What requirement didn't it satisfy?

Hi Thanks for your reply

I have used the verypdf & e-pdf and looked in to lot more but appropiate.

Requirement is:-

1) Should be callable form java
2) Bulk conversion and printing (as in case of batch)
3) Multithread support as in case of web application

I do understand the they use something very specific because they install something like printer driver but i am not sure are they converting the excel --> image --> pdf or excel --> pdf.
