    I convert the pdf to text and edit the text with notepad/wordpad as that easier to extract the raw data and not have to fight highlighting the data in pdf format. The pdftotext.exe is part the xpdf package. http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/download.html. I use the -l to keep the format was it was in the pdf. You can also put a front end (ie. GUI) using something like 'autoit' to make it easier for you (or your users) to pick their pdf and bring it up without knowing command line. Hope this helps.

    @evanpan, what's wrong! this is a trial/ demo, you can't convert full pdf. First purchase and then it can work smoothly.

    Not everything will work 100%. It depends on the content of the PDF. We use a product PDFConverter with some good results.

    I am using pdfconverter, but it does not work 100% accurate for all documents. Sometimes it works fine for some documents, but when that matter of several pictures/ drawings/ tables, that time it does not work up to the mark.

    Very first thing to be sure of is whether or not the PDF contains text data rather than an image of data you want. Simply testing if the text can be selected by your mouse is usually sufficient and only takes a couple seconds.

    A simple Google search for "pdf to text" will bring up a list of numerous tools and tips. One that works for you can be selected to match your platform and budget.

    If there is no secret reason, you can try with on line converter websites.

    As mentioned by another poster, if the PDF is a screen shot/capture image you most likely will no be able to convert it to Excel.
