    IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel;
    application.DefaultVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel2016;
    IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.Open("../../Data/Template.xlsx");
    IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
    ExcelToPdfConverter converter = new ExcelToPdfConverter(workbook);
    PdfDocument document = converter.Convert();
    PdfLoadedDocument loadedDocument = new PdfLoadedDocument("Output.pdf");
    //Get the page count
    int pageCount = loadedDocument.Pages.Count;



Using excelEngine As ExcelEngine = New ExcelEngine
    Dim application As IApplication = excelEngine.Excel
    application.DefaultVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel2016
    Dim workbook As IWorkbook = application.Workbooks.Open("../../Data/Template.xlsx")
    Dim worksheet As IWorksheet = workbook.Worksheets(0)
    Dim converter As ExcelToPdfConverter = New ExcelToPdfConverter(workbook)
    Dim document As PdfDocument = converter.Convert()
