PDF to Excel Converter is a small application that does exactly what its name implies: converts PDF documents to XLS documents.
The software is simple to install and it involves that you press a few ‘Next’ buttons, nothing more. The interface is very friendly; you don't have to be a power user to understand how the tool works. Its language can be either left to English or changed to German.
Once you track down the respective PDF file on the computer, click it and select "Convert selected PDF to Excel". You can also preview it before conversion.
A window pops up, where you can input the pages of the PDF document you wish to convert, as well as enable text and image conversion. Once you have set up the output destination, start the conversion process.
The operation doesn't take long, but that depends on the size of the document. Once it is finished, you can directly visualize the result by selecting "Open in Excel".
PDF to Excel Converter also supports batch conversions, and it can merge several PDFs into one Excel file.
The results are very reasonable. The quality of text and image conversion is good, although special characters used by other languages except English are not supported by this software.
PDF to Excel Converter uses a small amount of CPU and resources, so it doesn’t burden your computer system.
The bottom line is that PDF to Excel Converter is a very good conversion tool, although a help file would have made a difference for beginners, at least.
