Convert Excel to TIFF

The TIFF format is widely used in faxing, scanning and other documentary exchange processing. It does not allow making any calculations, but it does allow showing their results without referring you to the outside resources. Universal Document Converter can automate the Excel to TIFF conversion with only a few clicks.
