      Is it possible to take a scanned document such as a tax return and export the data in each field to specific cells in excel ?

          It will be very hard to get as a originally but you can do a bit by running OCR and Export PDF to Excel

          In Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro

          == Go to Document Menu > OCR Text Recognise > Recognize text using OCR

           

          In Adobe Acrobat DC Pro

          1. Click on "Tools tab" and select "Enhance Scans", In the Enhance Scans properties bar choose "Recognise Text" from the drop down menu choose "In This File"

           

          After the REcognize text is complete

          2. In the Enhance Scans properties bar choose Reconize Text from the drop down menu select "Correct Recognize Text"

           

          After complete the workdone in PDF file, now Export to Excel

           

          It will help you a bit

           

           

          Thanks
