    See attached files. In the excel-file there are some checkbox controls. I use the following code to convert the excel file to a pdf:

            public static byte[] ExcelToPdfBytes(byte[] documentData)
                var provider = new XlsxFormatProvider();
                var workbook = provider.Import(documentData);
                var pdfProvider = new PdfFormatProvider();
                return pdfProvider.Export(workbook);

    When I open the exported pdf the checkbox controls are gone. Why?

    Hi David,

    RadSpreadProcessing doesn't support form controls at this point and that is why they are skipped while importing a spreadsheet document. We have logged a feature request in our public portal where you can vote for an implementation and track the status of the task. Here is a link to the concrete item: Implement support for form controls.

    Progress Telerik
