    I am looking for a program that will take a scanned .pdf and convert it to an excel file.

    I have tried Cogniview and Able2Extract, neither really functioned as well as I would like.

    Any suggestions?

    There is nothing out there that is going to do what you want as far as PDF to Excel. All the programs rely on OCR which is not a perfected technology so all of your data won't be captured and it will not be all nice and neat like copying and pasting.

    yeah, you're probably not going to have good results. Even the scanned pdf to docs like textbridge, etc don't work very well, and that is just text, not cells/columns.

    start typing :/
