How to Convert PDF to Excel Online

The PDFTables tool can save lots of time, instead of copying-and-pasting each cell.

Our algorithm can 'see' tables, and understands the spacing between items to identify the rows and columns, much as your eye does when you scan a page. You can use this tool in your browser, and this guide will walk you through the conversion.
