Try the unoconv utility. I've used it to convert several formats to PDF.

DAG: unoconv: Convert between any document format supported by OpenOffice

Hi Thanks for your quick response

My Server is not having the Universal Office Converter (unoconv).

It's not supporting the unoconv command as it's not having the pakages.

Could you please suggest me any other way ????

If you could provide the unix shell script for the same that would be great help for me.

THank you!!!

Do you have access to a machine that either has, or that you can install either OpenOffice or LibreOffice? Both allows exporting of spreadsheets to PDF format.

How have you Microsoft Excel running on a Unix or Linux system? You need to provide more information about your setup.
