I am trying to save my Excel spreadsheet as a pdf, and the resulting file is blank.

Using the export function or the safe as function is saving a blank file.

If you try to print-preview the file, does it appear blank as well by any chance? If yes you probably have to change the print area.

@Jan Karel Pieterse thank you soooooo much!!! So obvious, yet not something I even thought about. And yes, the print area was set to one blank cell.
