Convert pdf to Word without losing spaces

I have a pdf document which I am trying to convert to a Word document. I can save the pdf as a word document but all the spaces disappear. Are there any options I can use to retain spaces?

All suggestions appreciated, thanks

Try this install http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp this is a plugin to generate PDF.
Maybe there's a problem with the PDF export option in Word.
After you have installed the plugin. You can go to Print in Word or (CTRL+P) and then select CutePDFwriter and click ok.
I'm using AdobePDF print but that is installed with Adobe Creative Suite 4. You can't download that separatly.
Good luck

Barry,
Do you know how the PDF was created originally?  It may have something to do with the application that originally created the PDF or the format of the original document when it was converted.  Can you successfully convert a web page or Excel file to PDF with your Acrobat 7.0 and then to a Word doc with AA 7.0?   Just to verify your applications are working correctly?  If not, perhaps a repair or reinstall.
I have created several PDF files from Excel files, Word docs and web pages using Acrobat Standard 6.0 and have been successful in converting them to Word 2003 files.  An example is attached - Web page to PDF to Word doc.   When you open the document in Word do you get Word's File Convert dialog?  If so, are you selecting the Rich Text Format (RTF)?
I know these are just basic steps but thought they were worth checking.
