## Table split across multiple pages?

Depending on the layout of your Excel table, formatting errors may occur when saving it as a PDF. For example, if you have created a very wide table, it may automatically be split across multiple pages.

To check if your table is too wide, go to the “View” tab and select “Page Layout.” This will display the distribution of your table.

To ensure your table appears on a single page in the PDF document, you can simply change the page layout to “Landscape” before saving. Switch to the “Page Layout” tab, click on “Orientation,” and select “Landscape.” You can then save the Excel table as a PDF as described above.
