The OP may want his spreadsheets available on machines that don't have
*any* spreadsheet software, hence the need for pdf. I think we should
try and solve that issue, not suggest alternative formats.

Hi Jay,
Thanks for the response. I am using Linux and tried LO 3.5 and 4.0
but same behavior. I want to share the doc and the recipient might
not have LO hence the need to convert to PDF.

The issue is why are your using a pdf document and not using ods
format or even another format for your documents. The pdf format
is often used for file sharing when the recipient is expected to
only view the results and not edit them.

You should please use ods to promote LO; the native format can be seen
on numerous spreadsheet software such as gnumeric and m$excel.

Does m$ continue to remove formulae from spreadsheets and show only
the results?

If yes and your recipient does not need to view formulae, only
results, native format ods will be acceptable to m$excel
