There is OCR in Adobe Acrobat Standard which is able to convert PDF to Excel (roughly)
you can also use OCR in OneNote (MS Office package)
Both are a tad rough, but can do the job.

I've had excellent results with this free online tool:
http://www.pdftoexcel.org/

It does a good (but not perfect) job of maintaining the formatting, which is always the trick with any PDF to Excel (or Word) conversion. I don't know if it will work well on your particular PDFs, but it's worth a (free!) shot. If you do like it and would prefer a local install rather than the online tool, it is available for purchase and download (and it has a 7-day free trial):
