    Problems converting pdf to excel file

    Ok guys,
    So I started a new job this week in financial analysis.
    we have very old custom software and are in the process of switching to new software but in the meantime, i would like to avoid a mountain of data entry.
    In order to save paper we print most of our reports to PDF file instead.

    I only have Adobe Reader X on my system at work and was wondering if there was a way to view it in excel 2010 while keeping all or atleast most of the formatting within the document.

    Try this: Convert Data, Files Online FREE: PDF, Word, Excel, Text, Images.

    PDF to Excel: Convert PDF to Excel, Xls, csv online. Do it for free and then compare the quality to client side PDF to Excel converter solutions on the market.

    Ok, I tried it with one of my own excel files that I made into a pdf but I don't think my boss is gonna give me the ok to run these reports through an online service.
    I will say Im impressed with it though, worked beautifully!

    Have you tried "Open Office"? You can export files to .pdf.

    Just remember that the term is "export" when dealing with pdf's.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    Here's where the issue stands:
    It's a bit tedious, but we save the files as text and then import the data from txt into excel and are actually able to keep all of the formatting.
    I haven't tried open office, but i might fiddle around with it and see if i can import a pdf into it and keep the formatting.
    I appreciate the suggestions though guys.

    There is also another good trial version for your PDF to Excel conversion needs. Cogniview's PDF2XL software product was referred to me by my project peer, and this turned out to be a tremendous timesaver for my project work.
