Exploring on your own: Exporting tables from PDF files

You can easily copy and paste tables from a tagged PDF file into spreadsheet applications such as Excel. Earlier in this lesson (“Converting an Excel document and starting a review”), you converted an Excel workbook into a PDF file. You'll use that file again to see how easy it is to copy and paste tables from PDF files back into spreadsheet applications.

1.
Navigate to the Lesson03\Win folder, and double-click the Proj_Export.pdf file to open it in Acrobat.

2.
On the Acrobat toolbar, click the Select tool ().

3.
Drag from the top left of the table to the bottom right, selecting all the text in the table, or click in the table. Notice that the cursor changes to indicate a table selection ().

4.
Move the cursor over the Select icon that appears on the selected table, and choose the Open Table in Spreadsheet command from the context menu.



Acrobat automatically launches Excel and copies and pastes the table into a new spreadsheet.

5.
When you are finished close the new Excel spreadsheet and exit Excel. Then close Projections1.pdf.
