7. Convert Spreadsheet Document with Load Options

This example demonstrates how to convert Spreadsheet documents into pdf documents with load options.

There are steps that usage of GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud consists of:

  1. Upload input document into cloud storage
  2. Convert document
  3. Download converted document from storage

Steps 1 and 3 are storage operations, please refer to this GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud documentation for usage details.

Step 3 is not needed if the “OutputPath” option is not provided: the convert API method will return the converted document in the response body.


HTTP POST /conversion

Swagger UI lets you call this REST API directly from the browser.

SDK examples

Using an SDK (API client) is the quickest way for a developer to speed up the development. An SDK takes care of a lot of low-level details of making requests and handling responses and lets you focus on writing code specific to your particular project.
