For PDF to Excel, 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. Another nice feature of this tool is that it performs OCR if the file is an image-only PDF, thereby automatically creating the text.

I don't know if it will work well on your document, 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):

Another product worth trying is A-PDF to Excel:
http://www.a-pdf.com/to-excel/index.htm

It's not free, but is reasonably priced at $39 USD, and it offers a free trial so you can see if it works on your doc before buying it. Regards, Joe

I second Joe. pdftoexcel.org is really good.
In our company we use ABBYY FineReader.

Hi sanjeevkmrs,
You gave all of the points to the member who seconded my earlier post. I'm wondering why. Thanks, Joe

Hi Joe
Maybe he took ABBYY FineReader?

Joe Winograd, Fellow&MVEDeveloperCommented:
Maybe, but I doubt it. Btw, I've used ABBYY FineReader 11 and Nuance's OmniPage Ultimate (aka the latest version, 19) and my opinion is that if you already have text, it is not a good idea to pass it through OCR just to make the Excel file. If you already have text (i.e., it is not an image-only PDF), then it's much better to use a PDF-to-Excel converter than running it through OCR. Just one man's opinion, of course.

Re which part of your answer the author intended to accept, we'll have to wait for him to jump back into the thread. If we don't hear back from him, I'm happy to let it go as-is. Regards, Joe

Hi sanjeevkmrs,

"thanks" is not what we're looking for here. The issue is this:

I suggested http://www.pdftoexcel.org/ in my first post (along with other suggestions). Then hopeleonie said, "I second Joe. pdftoexcel.org is really good. In our company we use ABBYY FineReader."

You marked hopeleonie's post as the only solution, which would indicate that you went with the ABBYY FineReader solution, because if you went with pdftoexcel.org, then it would make sense that my prior post would be the Accepted Solution rather than a post that simply seconds my suggestion.

Furthermore, if you really did go with ABBYY FineReader, then you are OCR'ing a PDF file that likely already has text in it — generally speaking, not a good idea, but if that's the way you went, so be it.

In summary, the question for you is this: Which part of the Accepted Solution did you go for — pdftoexcel.org or ABBYY FineReader? If pdftoexcel.org, then it seems fair that my post would be the Accepted Solution (I'm fine with giving hopeleonie an Assisted Solution and some points for saying, "I second Joe"). If ABBYY FineReader, then everything is fine as is.

I hope it's clear now what we're looking for in the way of a clarification from you. It's simple — did you go with pdftoexcel.org or ABBYY FineReader? Thanks, Joe

sanjeevkmrs,
Two questions for you. Please answer each with Yes or No:

(1) Did you use pdftoexcel.org for the solution? Yes or No?

(2) Did you use ABBYY FineReader for the solution? Yes or No?

Thanks, Joe

OK, so that was the first suggestion in the first post:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28366497/PDF-to-Excel-converter.html#a39864090

Seems to me that should be the Accepted Solution. Perhaps you mistakenly picked the one after it, which said, "I second Joe". I'm going to do a Request Attention for the question to be re-opened. Then please close it more appropriately. Thanks, Joe
