How to export multipage tables to Excel and preserve formatting?

I have a 33-page table that appears in several documents and I need to export the tables to Excel so that I can analyze the data.  The PDFs were scanned from hard copy and I performed OCR in order to make the characters recognizable.  How can I export all 33 pages simultaneously?  Is this possible?

Thank you!

No, that is not possible. The export as table function only supports one page at a time, so you have to run this 33 times and combine the results in Excel.
