There seem to be two parts to your answer. Firstly, when the Excel is converted to a PDF, all the layout and all the formula information is lost. Itâs only slightly better than a photo. For example, the PDF stores the location of the blocks of text on the page - with no data about rows or columns. There are several software suppliers (including ourselves - pdf.zanran.com) who produce software to reverse engineer back from the PDF to Excel. Secondly, even when a PDF is completely locked down you can always print, scan and OCR it. But youâll need to check that the letters and digits are absolutely correct. If the scan quality is poor and the font size small, you can get 3 seen as 8, a comma seen as a stop, etc.
If you want to convert a PDF to Excel you can search the term, that will be a very good idea as we can see it is one of the top search terms, and it is probably very useful for you. There are other solutions that can also convert to Excel. If you want to convert a file that includes image files to PDF you will have it. You will find more than 300 solutions that you can choose from. A great number of them are free and there are a few paid solutions too. If you want to save the file or copy the file to a place you need then you have to use some special solutions. You can buy PDF file conversion solutions through the web and other solutions through the e-store or by physical mail (it's not quite that easy to send, you have to pay a price for that)..
