I dont think you can convert a PDF into EXCEL.
Normally is comer delimited.

If you can copy and paste the date into a text file you might be half way.

Adobe does an Editable version of PDF but i'm sure this depends upon how its been saved in the first place.

Try to think of it like this, your PDF document may as well as be a image for the way it handles text. You cant export values if its an image.

No idea on freeware. sorry.

Thanks oxton but I don't want to use online ones, they require an email addy which I hate giving out all the time (they all want it)
Just used zamzar.com and got a security alert when opening the converted file
Is there a tried and tested program out there that someone on here uses or used that is reliable?

Ive learned smile

Mike set up a new e-mail account with Google or Microsoft and use that as your dedicated spam account smile

That way in the future you can close it down and not effect your personal email account.

I always use MaskMe

When using email online, never had a problem. Something to think about if you need to do things like this a lot. thumbsup
