Hello Juma48,

Try doing a google search for "convert pdf to excel" (without the quotations)..there you will find numerous programs that will do what you wish. Here is just one example available.

PDF to Excel Converter 1.0

Another option would be to convert to the file .txt and then import into Excel usind something likde Pdf2Txt.

Once in txt you may :
1.) Open in xl. Use data to columns wizard
or variet of text functions to strip and arrange as needed

2.) If in column format you may be able highlight/copy/paste
into excel

Hope this helps. :whistling:

Thanks Jrenter2 for your help but unfortunately this is for office use so i can't dl any converter. Is there any chance that you know how to do it straight from Adobe?

I managed to search at google and find this website Export Pdf to Excel which teach me how to export from pdf to excel, however the instructions was in adobe 5 and i using adobe 7. So it kinda hard to follow through the instruction.

I went to adobe's support page, chose Acrobat Standard/Professional as the product, and searched for spreadsheet
This is the first result I got, is it what you were looking for?
