Hi all,
Using Excel 2010 and Acrobat X.

I have a spreadsheet with a list of names in one column and email addresses in another column. I want to combine them so that the name is displayed and the email address is a hyperlink. I can do this easily by using =hyperlink("mailto:"&a1,b1). The problem is that I then need to convert the document to PDF. The conversion will keep manual links, but not links created with the hyperlink function. I've seen a couple of suggestions such as saving the spreadsheet to HTML and then converting to PDF or a rather ingenious solution to copy the contents of the worksheet and then use Acrobat X to create a PDF from the clipboard. Both of those work, but they lose things like the borders around the cells and the repeating rows at the top of each page.

Any ideas? Thanks.

This should be the links as per Microsoft will create.
Not sure if this is what you are looking for.
