    Re: Need help for retrieving data from PDF and to put it in an excell sheet

    You can highlight the data in the PDF file and then copy/paste it into Excel. This will tend to put all the data in one column, so you can then apply Text-to-columns (on Data tab) to split it out into columns. You may need to remove header information etc.

    An alternative is to use an OCR package.

    Hope this helps.

    Pete
