If you're working in Acrobat X you can import a scanned page (either as an image file or direct from your scanner) and convert it to PDF, applying optical character recognition along the way. once in PDF form it can be re-saved to Excel via the File > Save As > Spreadsheet commands. See this video for a step-by-step tutorial.
for Dave Merchant since receiving your reply I have tried some of your instructions but feel that there is something still missing. I would appreciate your specific answer
to convert a PDF scan to a goal of clear, presentable, editable, Excel is this possible with acrobat x standard, or do I have to have pro? or something even more than pro?
