OCR software


Can EE recommend OCR software? We receive files in PDF, some are in editable PDF, some are in image scanned form. We are thinking if we could capture the data into Excel, that would save us a lot of time. thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
