Hi do you have Adobe Acrobat? I have found it converts tables in PDFs quite well, in English anyway - not for all files either. My recommendation is to download a trial version of Acrobat XI Pro and see if it works for you.

The trick is that it is not a conversion of the entire file. Just select the data table using your cursor, then you will note when you hover your mouse over the highlighted text, it will change to a black pointer with a little page icon. Right-click, and you will be provided with the option to Copy with Formatting... or Export selection as... then save as Excel file.
Hope that helps

Possibly a better option is Nitro Pro 8, it will automatically detect the tables and load them into an Excel file, a sheet for each table. Check the trial version first. To simplify the matter, you could combine all the files into one document, then Convert to Excel.

It seems like an image as only the heading is getting converted.
I think you better use software OCR which supports Arabic font.
what name of that software ?  OCR ?

I use Nuance PDF Converter Pro, but I don't think it supports Arabic.

Won't work: Solid only supports these languages: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish , Swedish and Russian
Arabic OCR

But you may have to do some work to set up the columns correctly afterwards!
i'll try to find it
Just click on the blue link on my comment above, it will go directly to the software site...
i didn't find any download link in that page
