Default PDF to Excel Conversion

I would like to edit text from a PDF File and am currently using Able2Extract Software which does extract all the information but displaces the data when put into excel. Any suggestions on how to do this as able2extract takes a really long time with all the formatting and all.

What the hell?
You have a spreadsheet in a PDF? And you want to put it into Excel?

First off, the best way to get info out of a PDF is with Adobe products, like Adobe Reader 6.0. Anything else is pretty much gonna hose things up.

Second, putting a spreadsheet into a PDF file is pretty unusual. I'm guess that it is instead a html table someone's put in, which would hose up the formatting if you put it into Excel.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
