Code Sample - Convert Excel Documents to PDF Documents

In this sample an instance of the ExcelToPdfConverter class is constructed and used to convert an Excel file to a PDF document in a memory buffer. The resulted buffer is saved in a PDF file on disk. The demo also contains code for adding a header and a footer with page numbering to the resulted PDF document.
