How to export PDF to Word, Excel or PowerPoint using Acrobat XI

Steve Gottwals – September 6, 2012

Many people think that PDF is a static format and that content is locked inside, but with Acrobat XI you can save time from retyping that information—by exporting it directly into Microsoft Word and Excel. And with Acrobat Pro you can export it into Microsoft Powerpoint as well. So here is a file I have in Acrobat, and if I click on tools/content editing. And export file to Microsoft Powerpoint, let's go ahead and save. Let's go over to my folder. And as it comes up I can open it in Powerpoint, and I can see that all the content and editing came over including things like bullets and the master layout. In another PDF document, I can select, for instance, a table. And I can export this to Word. But I am going to choose to export it to Excel. I will do a right click. Export selection as...let's do an Excel Workbook. Save. Again, go over to my folder, and open up the Excel file. And again the content and the format all came over great. Acrobat XI saves you the hassle of re-typing that information so you can get your job done faster.
