Can we convert office documents (Word/Excel) to PDF/XPS using OpenXML.
I am aware of the fact that we can accomplish the above using Microsoft Interop assemblies but the impending factor is that the conversion is very slow.
If i provide big/huge documents as input, it is taking lot of time for this conversion to complete.

Can we achieve this using OpenXML?
I have gone through few blogs/articles on internet to achieve this but all of them are using Sharepoint Server to do this.

I am planning not to use SharePoint and achieve the above mentioned conversion (Word/Excel to PDF/XPS)

is this possible using OpenXML ?

Thanks and Regards,

For those who need this i am posting the solution also.
I posted the same question in MSDN Microsoft forums and got the confirmation that it cannot be done using OpenXML. We need to use Interop services

I am posting the link below. Go through the entire post if needed.[^]
