    PDF Convert to Excel not working properly

    hendrikg51812401

      The problem I am having is that Acrobat isn't formatting the cells properly. If exporting to Excel has seemingly random columns, then I can't actually use the data.

       

      Is there a way of choosing how the data is placed into cells?

       

      Thanks,

          I have discovered that if I edit convert the PDF to a screen shot and then crop out all the confusing layout, that I can get useful columns and rows, but only on a page by page basis. So every page I scan has to processed by hand. The negative numbers are not being converted to negative numbers in Excel.

           

          In short, I am doing the processing of the data. It is actually faster for me to copy the document by hand into a Excel spreadsheet.

           

          In order for this to be a useful conversion to Excel, the converter needs to trim the blank space off the front and rear of the text strings and then convert the text into a meaningful number if the text indicates this is what needs to be done.

           

          I would like to cancel my service, how do I return the software and get my money back?
