How To Convert PDF to Excel Online?
Easy-to-use PDF software
I have a PDF that I need to convert into an excel sheet, while maintaining the data in the proper excel format. What is the best tool for this? The PDF does not have "tables" embedded.
Without any special software, there is a great tool called the Alt key. If you want to copy the data into excel a column at a time, you click on the top of the column in pdf and hit the Alt key as you drag across the data in that column. This assumes you have a document with recognizable text. When highlighted, hit copy and paste. Repeat for each column. Yes, this is old style, but it is handy.
Convert PDF to Excel: All You Need to Know
In addition, I have to tell you this. There is software that does this with the mouse. I think Adobe Illustrator has the Alt key for this. Please email if you know of this application. What does this mean to you? As you can see from the above table, data must be imported in one column at a time. Then the data must be copied to Excel and the data must be pasted in an Excel cell at a time. This is a tedious procedure that is best avoided if possible. If you do use an application that has Alt as well as CTRL, then you can paste into Excel and drag across the data in that cell as you go. If you have an Alt key, then the data can be pasted in an Excel cell and then dragged around. This is easier than a mouse. It also.
