          I am not sure if this will help. However, I can export data from a portfolio to excel by doing the following:


          I extract all the pages from the portfolio into single PDFs

          I open the first PDF

          Click on Tools

          Under Forms, I select More From Options

          I select Merge Data Files into Spreadsheet

          The pop-up box allows you to add all of the additional files that you made from the portfolio

          Click on them then click Export

          It will ask for a file name and place to save it.
