    woah. Thats quite a ambigous question. It could be for a number of reasons. It could be your PC's hardware, old version of Acrobat, The Excel spreadsheet could be corrupted somewhere, Spyware on your PC, etc etc.

    What version of Acrobat are you running? How big is the Excel file? Also what product are you using to convert the Excel file to PDF?

    well its version 6 acrobat

    i just tested the file on another comp and it did the same
    but using acrobat 7 its fine

    umm kinda need it to work on 6.0

    the file size was only 488K but when it printed to PDF it was 7mb !! ive changed the quality down to 300dpi which made the PDF file 2mb but still taking long time!!!


    cheers

    Acrobat takes an eternity for me to convert simple documents like a 20-some page Word document with some pictures. It took almost 10 minutes for it to convert.

    Images don't seem to compress well in PDFs, which is why your file could have increased so much. Plus remember it's embedding fonts and other data that the original format assumed was on your system.

    Try to install a new printer as per these instructions http://ekstreme.com/digitalsmoke/freepdf.php . See if it is faster...

    Also, maybe try to open the Excel file in OpenOffice 2 Beta and convert it to PDF from there. The beta version is actually quite stable and fast.
