    Looking for a print driver (Excel 97 )

    What I have been looking for (without much success) is a print driver
    that would print any file to an Excel file.

    What do you mean by that?
    If you installed a printer with option "print to file", the resulting file will always be in .prn format, that contains particular printer settings (you can open such a file with Notepad and see what it means.)
    If you want to convert any file to a worksheet, open your file in Excel and follow the wizard.
    By the way, how do you imagine to convert, for example, BMP picture into a worksheet? As a thumbnail in A1 cell ?

    Hi, kaplinb.

    I think what dreyes is looking for is something along the lines of the Acrobat PDF Maker or Acrobat Distiller, where whatever the application your viewing if you select that "printer" from your printer list it will "convert" it to PDF format. Thus, I don't feel the question is that implausible. Nonetheless, I don't think I've ever seen one for Excel (or any spreadsheet) format.

    I agree. But dreyes must understand, that PDF in strict terms is a "picture", not a "document", that's why Acrobat uses "printing" process to create an image of the document. Hence "printing into Excel file" is nonsense.
