Converting PDF files to Excel format
Converting non-editable PDF Files to editable format is surely a very common requirement for many users. This guest article describes a product that can do this. It is contributed by Ms. Carla Emerson from Cometdocs. I am currently testing this at work with my colleagues and will include updates based on our experience.
When transferring information electronically to others, many people prefer to use the PDF format for many reasons. It is a great file for transferring information firstly because it is a universal format that enables your file to look exactly the same whether you are opening it using Windows, Mac or Linux.
Another excellent feature of the PDF is that it is a file compressed file format, which allows you to store a lot of information into a small file size. These features make PDF perfect for archiving information and distributing it.
However, the PDF file is almost impossible to edit in most cases. And therefore receiving a PDF with tabular data that you need to edit and use can cause you a headache. Luckily, there are online tool and software that can help you to convert these locked PDF files into easily editable Excel files.
