I have installed this program, and am now trying to use it. However, when I select "Convert to WORD" nothing happens.

Thanks

Oh yes. sorry did not clarify.

Yes, I do have WORD installed, but do not see the option to convert the document to Excel. I am using the pdfedit

Is there a way to convert this to Excel?
