     ExcelConverter excelConverter = new ExcelConverter(inPath, excelOptions);
     excelConverter.DocumentParsing += excelConverter_DocumentParsing;
 static void excelConverter_DocumentParsing(object sender, ExcelDocumentParsingEventArgs excelDocumentParsing)
     foreach (var sheet in excelDocumentParsing.Worksheets)
         if (sheet.SheetName != "Sheet 1")
             sheet.ConversionOptions.PageSize = ExcelPageSize.Letter;
 Private Sub ExcelDemo(ByVal inPath As String, ByVal outPath As String)
         Dim excelOptions As ExcelConversionOptions = New ExcelConversionOptions(ExcelPageSize.A4, PageOrientation.Portrait, 40)
         Dim excelConverter As ExcelConverter = New ExcelConverter(inPath, excelOptions)
