Hello,

I have a pdf report like as shown in the attached screenshot.  Is it possible to convert/import it into excel?  I also have acrobat pro 10 but not sure if that will help.  I am not familiar with acrobat pro 10.

have you tried selecting the data in Acrobat, hitting copy, then going to Excel and pasting the data?

PS - if form fields are defined in your PDF report or tables are defined, then extracting that data via VBA is possible, otherwise all VBA can help you with you can do with a simple copy/paste manually.

This is a good tip page on "all things PDF to Excel" or almost ;)  For $60 you can get a really good utility that handles batch conversion, etc.  The page is worth a read as it discusses several methods, one of which might suit your needs:

You can of course write code to extract data given you have Acrobat Pro, though you'll need someone with experience with JavaScript and/or using the Adobe API's.

Cheers,

Dave
