To convert a PDF to Excel there are a lot of freemium type offerings, but ultimately Iâve found through trialing some, that it really depends on your specific use-case. So I would trial a few. I prefer a cloud based solution and one that will get Excel and/or .csv file downloads from the PDF. For this type scenario, I currently use docparser. This solution allows me to extract tabular and single point data from my pdfâs and preview the results, and ultimately download the converted file. So if you are trying to convert to .xcl for xTree, then I am not sure about that, never worked with xTree.
This is an illustration of an actual Excel file. If you want to copy the data into Excel a column at a time, you click on the top of the column in PDF and hit the Alt key as you drag across the data in that column. This assumes you have a document with recognizable text. When highlighted, hit copy and paste. Repeat for each column. In a Word file, a similar method of copying data and inserting a comment in the margins can be used. Click on the bottom half of the column and then click on the text under the data in the first column that you want to copy. This can be done by clicking on the left side of the first column and dragging your cursor left through the column to see the right side. When you click on the top.
