How to extract tables from PDF?

I have a PDF catalog that has tables with product name, description, and prices on them. Is there a way to extract tables from a PDF file (with many pages), and load them into an Excel or delimited text file? I'm trying to avoid typing the product information into Excel manually one-by-one. Any ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Copy-paste should work if tab separated. Otherwise perhaps post file here for someone to do it with a little script if not to secret.

if you have acrobat, as opposed to just reader, you can select the table, then right click and choose 'copy as table'
