Convert PDFs to Excel

Quickly export PDFs to Excel spreadsheets

Whether it’s your own time or your employees, it is too valuable to waste time re-entering data into spreadsheets.

The good news is that you don’t have to anymore. Now you can accurately convert tables within PDF files into familiar and useable Excel spreadsheets. Power PDF not only captures numbers and text, but it also retains the formatting, keeping columns and rows intact – to give you a fully functional spreadsheet.

This would be helpful for example, if a PDF document contained a list of items and quantities to be ordered. After converting to Excel, you could easily sort, run calculations, and even reformat your data.
