Converting PDF documents into text-based formats without losing much of the original layout and functionality is not an easy task. With a special emphasis on PDF to Excel conversion, Able2Extract Professional transforms PDF files into MS Office documents, open source formats, AutoCAD files, HTML pages, CSV and TSV files, taking the utmost care in reproducing the original structure and purpose of data as faithfully as possible. Of course, this tool is also capable of converting your PDF documents into some of the most common image file formats, such as BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF, and GIF (animated GIFs included).

Though Able2Extract comes with some PDF editing features that will allow you add text, stamps, watermarks, and even annotations and sticky notes to your PDFs, the true beauty of this professional tool lies in its PDF to Excel, PDF to AutoCAD, and PDF to CSV conversion processes. Famous for its high-quality PDF to spreadsheet conversion, the program allows you to configure and customize the way tables, columns, and rows will be rendered in the resulting XLS file. The output can be previewed, allowing you to reformat and replot your data beforehand to ensure that the results are fully functional. AutoCAD users can now convert scanned drawings into fully-functional CAD graphics thanks to the new Raster to Vector engine, while retaining whatever text is present. The results can be stored as a DWG or DXF file. Finally, conversion of PDF files into Comma or Tab Separated Values (CSV or TSV) files can be fully customized to fit your database requirements.

Able2Extract Professional can also help you to improve, correct, and enhance your PDF files, as well as to create new ones. You can load existing files and transform them into PDF documents, OCR them to make the text editable, and encrypt them to make them unbreakable. You can also extract pages, insert new ones, annotate your documents, redact them, apply watermarks and clipart to them, and a number of other editing and enhancing features that will help you make the most of your PDFs.

Able2Extract Professional makes PDF to Excel conversion simple and reliable. Its conversion capabilities into other selected MS and open-source formats (both individually and in batches) are equally smart, so I recommend you to test the program with your most complex documents and be surprised with the results.
