Table and pivot table PDF export formatting

When you export a table or pivot table to PDF, the formatting is handled differently based on the layout used by the workbook.

Set up a custom delivery schedule

When you configure a scheduled export, if the default delivery options do not work for your needs, you can set up a custom cron schedule to define the delivery time. When you configure a scheduled export, for the Frequency, choose Custom and enter a cron expression.

Use cron syntax to specify the minute, hour, day (month), month and day (week). For assistance writing cron expressions, see crontab guru.
