PDF to Excel Converter converts PDF files to Microsoft Excel-compatible files. Online and quick-help options help users of different skill levels quickly master the software.

Pros

Setup: Clicking Setup opens an all-in-one dialog with many options, including word-to-word distance and column spacing. We could also choose or change settings while adding files to convert, too. Finished files opened normally in Excel.

Batch processing: Robust standalone functionality sets PDF to Excel Converter apart from online converters, starting with reliable batch processing that doesn't depend on an Internet connection or available bandwidth.

Merge and append: PDF to Excel Converter also merges PDFs and appends documents to existing PDF or Excel files.

Cons

Wording: We encountered some poorly translated interface language: "From all PDF documents in an Excel list is generated document."

Freeware and webware: PDF to Excel Converter faces stiff competition from capable freeware and a plethora of free online converters.

Bottom Line

Users who just need to convert a document or two should probably start with the free alternatives, but if you require a more robust tool for an office environment, check out PDF to Excel Converter.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PDF to Excel 3.2.

"Accomplished what 3 other programs couldn't"

March 11, 2015  |  By asemler33

 |  Version: PDF to Excel 3.2

Pros

It worked! I had dozens of reports from a prospective client that had to be exported from their software in PDF form. To analyze the data, I needed them to be in excel. I tried at least 3 other pdf-to-excel conversion programs, and none of them worked well. One of them cut off all the data at the top and bottom of each page. On a 61-page report, that's not going to cut it. But this program worked like a charm on 4 different types of reports, one that was extremely complex.

Cons

* In my case, it converted the data from each row into a single cell. So once it converted, I had to use the Text to Columns feature to get the data into separate columns. Although this required extra steps, it was better than the other programs had delivered and better than the alternative (hand-keying data).
* The user interface is a bit rudimentary and dated. But I'll take that over a nice user interface on a program that doesn't work.
