Text Accessible issues

Friend of mine has Adobe 6 Pro (older Windows machine) and converts a file to txt accessible whcih we then bring into EXCEL.  When I try to do the same with 6 Pro, 7 Pro, or Std X on my (new) machine it doesn't.  Why?  It seems to break the lines in the pdf document and put them on different rows.  Will the cloud service from Adobe convert these properly?

    Try tagging the text as a table in Acrobat Pro. using the Touch Up Reading Order panel tool in the Accessibility panel before saving the file  as Accessible Text.This helps Acrobat export the content as a table and not individual text rows.

    Have you tried saving as Excel from Acrobat XI or just Text (Accessible)?
