Distiller settings are 8.5 x 11 but Excel documents are rendered at a much larger size. Please help!

Acrobat X is rendering pdfs converted from excel files at large than normal page sizes even when the page size settings (preferences > convert to pdf > microsoft office excel) are set to 8.5 x 11.

This is occurring in any conversions using distiller but, when you print to a pdf (NOT save as a pdf), the correct document size is created.

I have located threads going back 3 months addressing this issue but, all have been closed with little or no comment by Adobe personnel.

Can you explain how you are creating your PDF from Excel? Are you using the Acrobat ribbon in Excel, Save As Adobe PDF in Excel, or Save As and select PDF in Excel? Also, what version of Excel are you using?
