Saving Workbook as Pdf
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a type of document created by Adobe back in 1990s. The purpose of this file format was to introduce a standard for representation of documents and other reference material in a format that is independent of application software, hardware as well as Operating System. The PDF file format has full capability to contain information like text, images, hyperlinks, form-fields, rich media, digital signatures, attachments, metadata, Geospatial features and 3D objects in it that can become as part of source document.

Saving Workbook to Text or CSV Format
Sometimes, you want to convert or save a workbook with multiple worksheets into text format. For text formats (for example TXT, TabDelim, CSV, etc.), by default both Microsoft Excel and Aspose.Cells save the contents of the active worksheet only.
The following code example explains how to save an entire workbook into text format. Load the source workbook which could be any Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice spreadsheet file (so XLS, XLSX, XLSM, XLSB, ODS and so on) with any number of worksheets.
When the code is executed, it converts the data of all sheets in the workbook to the TXT format.
You can modify the same example to save your file to CSV. By default, TxtSaveOptions.Separator is comma, so do not specify a separator if saving to CSV format.
Saving Text Files with Custom Separator
Text files contain spreadsheet data without formatting. The file is a kind of plain text file that can have some customized delimiters between its data.
