Wow- how frustrating.  I received an excel file which evidently was printed to PDF, so it is in pdf format.  I want to convert it back to excel. Back when I have Acrobat 5- it was a simple bang-bang operation using the Table/Formatted Text Select tool and Save as table.   I can't find these tools in our current version of Acrobat which is 7.  Can someone help?  I have lost about an hour this morning trying to figure this out.  Thanks!

Hi

The v7 allows you to save as RTF from the File SaveAs option. This would bring the file via RTF into Excel.

Would that help?
