Converting PDF to Excel (XLSX)
The process is identical to PDF to Word. Click on the icon representing the PDF → XLSX conversion, choose whether you want OCR enabled, and select the appropriate languages to get the most out of your conversion.
NOTE: The OCR functionality is only available to PDF Extra Ultimate users.
Once done, you’ll have a perfectly formatted spreadsheet and will be able to utilize great features like formulas, macros, and other data shaping & management tools that are otherwise not supported by the PDF environment.
NOTE: To achieve the best conversion results, some light PDF to Excel prep work might be required. This includes cleaning your document from poorly or non-supported elements in Excel, such as:
- Padding, indents, bullet lists, checklists, or any other kind of non-standard text formatting
- Footers, headers, bates numbers, and other kinds of supplementary content
- Video, audio, and other multimedia content
NOTE: PDF Extra supports two-way conversions (PDF → XLSX and XLSX → PDF).
