Converting PDF tables to Excel

Converting PDF tables to MS Excel is important for drug submission translationsAnybody who has ever been involved in a regulatory submission project knows about the challenges of working with tables - particularly if the source files are in PDF format. If the PDF files contain uneditable materials, translators have to reach deep into their toolbox. But extracting tables isn't easy -- even if the files are editable.

The Acrobat for Life Sciences blog published step-by-step instructions on how to use Acrobat 9.1 to convert tables between Excel and PDF formats, both for single files and in batch mode.

Another option is to use the service provided by ReportMiners. Their standard fee of $100 per conversion drops to $25 for recurring reports and maybe worthwhile for complex, multi-file reports.
