Free PDF to Excel Converter is a fast and flexible way to turn PDF documents into Excel documents.

Free PDF to Excel Converter is freeware. It’s also a very focused app that does one job and does it quite well. It also doesn’t require any other software. That means you don’t need to own or have installed Microsoft Excel or Adobe Acrobat for this program to work. The program isn’t particular either. It can convert any PDF document regardless of what application created it or last edited it.

Free PDF to Excel Converter converts the PDF format to the Excel format quickly and accurately. This smoothness is thanks in large part to how Microsoft Office handles objects. Most conversions are simply a matter organizing text, tables, and images, but it doesn’t matter what the document contains. The Excel engines finds a way to encapsulate it and usually does a great job representing the data.

It’s important to note that automated conversions like this are never perfect. If you’re goal is a polished product then there will certainly be some editing by hand involved. Nevertheless, Free PDF to Excel Converter can save you a lot of time by automating mundane tasks on a single document. That time savings only increases if you use the program to handle entire batches.

The user interface is a tad basic and outdated, but it’s well-organized, and you should find it easy to use. Drag and drop is supported and so is a command line interface. There’s no exclude option either through the UI or the CLI, which is a shame. If you’re converting a dozen PDF documents that all have the same splash you don’t want it’d be nice to be able to eliminate that object just once.
