I am trying to convert a large amount of PDF files that has tables on them (some are filliable Forms). I need to convert the files to Microsoft Word 10. I have tried to convert the files by using the export option but it would lose the format and the tables would go crazy. Is there a software that I could buy or a process that I could use to get the files to export the files without losing the format. Hopeful I have explained this issue clear enough in order to get help.
That suggests that the PDF was not created with PDF Maker that retains the format information. As a result, there is not much you can do with Acrobat if it is not converting properly. You can try to save as HTML or RTF and import those into WORD. Sometimes those conversions will do better, but not real sure.
You can also use a copy and paste from the PDF with the alt key held down to force the column mode of copy. Unfortunately, with Acrobat there is not much more you can do. There are some 3rd party products that focus on the conversion to WORD and I understand do a much better job for the type of untagged document you likely have. Check with PDF Zone or Planet PDF for the 3rd party solutions. Be aware, they are not cheap either.
I was wondering can the new acrobat x achieve that process. I was looking at the new feature and saw that they have fixed the conversion process but I am not sure how to do a batch of them instead of doing it one at a time. I downloaded the free trail and it works great but couldnt figure out has to automate the process. I called in to adobe and they refered meet to this forum. They are real helpful dont you think. lol.
