Extract PDF Data into Excel Accurately and Selectively

It’s been noted that document conversion from PDF into Excel can heavily disappoint, especially when dealing with spreadsheets overflowing with various data. After trying to convert PDF into Excel, people report all sorts of formatting issues, such as extracting all data from a PDF into a single Excel cell, inaccurate conversion of wrapped text cells, unwanted merged cells that make it very difficult to use aggregate functions, etc.

In order to avoid that, data analysts, accountants and other Microsoft Excel users should find a reliable PDF to Excel conversion solution that will save their valuable time and allow them to easily manipulate data locked in PDF.

Following on that, Excel users may want to try out Able2Extract Professional 9, which is developed precisely with PDF and Microsoft Excel users in mind.
