    Search function in Reader, please help!!! at wits end!

      I have an excel file with multiple columns converted to a pdf.

      When using search function in adobe reader how do I get search to

      return a line of data from what was column a in excel to column f?

      Now it returns partial data from one line and then wraps around

      to the next line and returns data from that line also.

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

          When it goes from Excel to Acrobat, it "prints" the PDF.

          As a printed document, Reader knows no cells, columns or rows. Only text.

           

          I've found that if I export an xls to Word and set it in tables, the printing seems to be more compliant when it's printed to PDF and it's easier to work within the original layout's integrity.

           

          That's the extent of what I can offer. I just don't set many excel workbooks to PDF.

           

          Hopefully there's someone else here with more experience doing this.
