If you google "extract PDF form data" you'll find a lot of low priced utilities to get the data, or you can export it from Acrobat.

If you care to post a sample form, I can probably knock up something to walk down a folder full of PDFs and write the contents to either a spreadsheet or a Access DB or SQL Server table.
