Questions? We have answers.

Will the converted Excel file show the content from my original PDF?

As the inventor of the PDF file format, Adobe makes sure that the Acrobat PDF to Excel converter tool creates a high-quality file you can work with on Mac or Windows. The Acrobat functionality transfers your PDF data and content right into an Excel spreadsheet, where you can edit the rows and columns.

You can also try Adobe Acrobat Pro free for seven days to: edit PDFs with optical character recognition technology, split PDFs, reduce file sizes, convert Microsoft 365 files to PDF, and export PDFs to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

What's the difference between XLS and XLSX?

The XLS and XLSX file formats are file extensions used by Microsoft Excel. The XLS file format is an older format used by Microsoft Excel 2003 and earlier. With the release of Microsoft Excel 2007, Microsoft introduced the new XLSX file format based on the Open XML (Extensible Markup Language) standard. If you have Microsoft Excel 2003 or earlier, you’ll need to download the free Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack to open, edit, and save XLSX files.

How do I open my file after converting from PDF to Excel?

It's easy to open converted files. After the PDF to Excel conversion, download your new Excel workbook. Then launch Microsoft Excel, choose Open from the File menu, and select the converted file to open. You can also sign in to Acrobat online services to save your converted Excel document to Adobe Document Cloud for quick online access from anywhere.
