PDF to Excel Conversion Backgrounder

Convert your PDF files into formatted Excel spreadsheets!

Unlike many other products claiming to convert PDF to Excel, the Able2Extract Professional's PDF To Excel converter is much more than just a PDF to Text converter masquerading as a PDF to Excel conversion tool. Able2Extract Professional is powered by Investintech's proprietary conversion algorithm, specifically designed to ensure that tabular data contained in PDF's can be seamlessly exported into fully formatted Excel spreadsheets for easy data analysis. In addition to Investintech's automated PDF to Excel conversion, Able2Extract Professional has an advanced custom user option that allows for the column or row structure of a table to be defined by the user themselves.

Using Able2Extract Professional's automatic PDF to Excel conversion option, users can view and select the data they want to convert in their PDF document, then click on a single button and complete the conversion into Excel. Able2Extract Professional's conversion algorithm provides excellent results for most tables, including financial statements and reports.

Able2Extract Professional's custom column selection option allows the end user to designate the column structure of a table. This can be an ideal solution for uniquely formatted tables. In addition, the custom selection allows the user to eliminate headers and footers for tables that span multiple pages, such as database generated reports, so that the Excel output appears in the structure the user desires. Users have the ability to customize the row structure and sections within a page of a PDF. This will enable users to further prepare their PDF documents for even more precise results in Excel.

After the custom selection has been used to designate the column/row/section structure for a document, Able2Extract Professional has the ability to save that structure so that it can be used on other documents! This powerful feature will streamline the work process for professionals that regularly receive reports in a particular format. Able2Extract Professional even allows you to specify a particular Excel file that you would like to extract data into.

Able2Extract Professional is a stand-alone product that works independently of Adobe's suite of products, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader. The end result is PDF to Excel conversion quality that is second to no other product currently available on the market today.
