Convert PDF to Microsoft Excel

Nitro Pro 7 allows you to convert PDF files into a Microsoft Excel 2003 XML spreadsheet (.xml), or Excel 2007 Workbook (.xlsx).

You can export a range of pages, whole files, or whole collections of files in a single task. For Nitro PDF Professional to process the conversion your PDF must contain tabular data, otherwise the conversion will be unsuccessful.

To convert PDF to Microsoft Excel:

  1. On the Home tab, in the Convert group, click To Excel

  2. In the Convert PDF to Excel window, do any of the following:

    • Click Add Files, and then browse to select additional PDF files to include

    • Select a PDF file from the list and then use the Move Up or Move Down options to reorder the documents, or click Remove to remove a document from the list

    • Check the Include all open PDF documents checkbox to quickly export all open PDFs to Excel

    • To convert specific pages in a document, select the document, then click Choose Pages. In the Pages field, enter the desired page or range of pages (separated by a dash). For example, to convert pages 3, 4, and 5 of an 8-page document, enter 3-5.

    • In the Conversion Settings section, specify a File format: Excel 2007 Workbook (.xlsx), or Excel 2003 XML spreadsheet (.xml)

    • Use the Output section to specify where to save the exported file

    • To automatically open the exported documents in the default program, check the Open files after conversion checkbox

      TIP: You can use the page navigation arrows at the bottom of the window to preview individual pages for easier selection.
  3. Click Convert to complete the conversion
