How to convert PDF to Excel


Choose a file

Select a PDF file from your computer or drag-and-drop it in the box to upload. You can also upload your file from a cloud storage service such as Google Drive or Dropbox.

View and download

Once your file has been converted, access your Excel document by downloading it to your computer and viewing it in your browser. We can also email you a link to your document, which will only be accessible for 24 hours.


PDF pages will transform into Excel spreadsheets

Our intelligent converter tool can guarantee a seamless transition from PDF to Excel. When you convert your PDF document into an Excel file, every page within your PDF will be turned into a separate Excel spreadsheet. Our intuitive PDF to Excel converter is even able to recognize the rows and columns of tables within your PDF document and convert them into tables in the new Excel file. If your PDF was originally converted from an Excel document, then your new file should be very close to the original. You’ll be able to edit your converted Excel file, as though it had always been one.

Preserved format

The format of your PDF will be respected in the new Excel file. Blank cells will be inserted to replace spaces from the PDF document, and the original colors, borders, and fonts from your PDF will remain intact.

No recreated formulas

Since PDF documents do not contain any mathematical formulas, no formulas will be recreated in the converted Excel document.

Convert back to PDF
