How to convert DOCX/XLSX/PPTX to PDFA in C# with Aspose REST APIs

I want to convert docx, xlsx and pptx files to pdf/a for archiving. From what I understand this is supported in the hosted versions but I can’t fins them in the list of supported formats when using the cloud service here: http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/wordscloud/convert+(Controller+resource). Is pdf/a supported when using the cloud service?

Hi,


Thank you for contacting support. Using Aspose for Cloud APIs, there is no direct way to convert docx, xlsx and pptx to PDF/a. You can convert office files to PDF (using Aspose.Words/Cells/Slides for Cloud APIs), and then PDF to PDF/a using Aspose.Pdf for Cloud. However, we’re in communication to check conversion support of docx to PDF/a in the native code base of Aspose.Words API, and then will get back to you soon.

Hi,

Thank you for being patient. Please note, you can convert office files to PdfA1b. Please refer to the these help topics:

Aspose.Words for Cloud:

Resource: saveAs (Controller resource)

Aspose.Cells for Cloud:

Resource: saveAs (Controller resource)

Aspose.Slides for Cloud:

Resource: SaveAs Resource

Please let us know in case of any confusion or questions.
