I need to Save As a PDF or Export as a PDF a number of .xlsx files.  Get msg. saying cant because file is open, or that there was an error in saving the file.  The file saves properly as the .xlsx file. The error occurs with any number of files that I  try to change to a .PDF.

@Esuarkrd_402  Is that just with this one Excel file? Maybe you have a PDF with the same name already open?
