Convert pdf to Excel

We have Nokia firewalls that print reports in PDF format and we need import those pdf files into Excel.

Are there any free programs that will convert pdf files into Excel?

I've tried working with pdf files and found that they have lots of problems if you copy/paste or otherwise try to extract the information, but I think it depends how the file is created.

So have you tried the copy/paste?

thanks jppinto and rspahitz,

I am going to try opening the file with Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 and then paste into notepad and then import into Excel.
