    Stand-alone Excel Template or Fillable PDF?

    Hello-

    I have created a form with time, date, and basic math formulas. I would like to distribute this fillable form to colleagues as a "stand-alone" type of document. Originally I thought converting to a PDF would be the easiest solution; but it's turned out to be quit complicated with my limited skills. Is there an easy way to do this within Excel?

    Thank you in advance!

    Scott

    excel 2013 => file => export to pdf => save as pdf.

    after that you can mail that file.
    Notice my main language is not English.

    I appreciate it, if you reply on my solution.

    If you are satisfied with the solution, please mark the question solved.

    Thank you Oeldere. I have done that, but the formulas, dropdowns, etc. do not work.

    Of course not, since it is a pdf file, not a excel file.

    If you want the users to use formula's mail the excel file

    That did solve part of my problem; however, the functions don't work with the Ipad Excel app.

    I don't have a IPad so, I can't test that for you. Maybe another member can.
