Comments on AnyBizSoft PDF to Excel Converter

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Tried this out. I'm sure it works great for standard formatted row and column spreadsheets, but the PDFs I need to convert are multiformatted with cross-column headers and labels. This software, while potentially very useful in most cases, converts these into a format that is so useless that it is easier and faster to just manually re-enter all the data by hand.

The result has all the important data spread out, and entire row of data in a single cell, sometimes three or more rows in a single cell. It also places the entire page, which has several column and width formats, into 1 column. So all the data presents in one column, with 1-18+ rows placed in individual rows. While I would love to have the use of this software for my needs, it seems that it is ill suited in its present, simple form.

#35 Dave F:

I just now saw your comment.

Sorry, I don't know the answer. I don't have access to a scanner anymore. If it is doing as you say, all I can think of is that there is some problem with this program. You could try converting one of your pdf files to Excel online to see if that works. (You can find one with an online search such as Google.) If it does, that will tell you that the fault is in this program, not in the scanner software.

If all else fails, don't forget to try asking the developer--especially if you were considering purchasing their software. Their helpfulness (or lack-of) would be a major selling point.

#30 Jim, My scanner (Lexmark) has ocr in its software, and generates a PDF with cut-able, paste-able data in the resulting file. Yet the PDF does not convert that with this program. I end up with a data-free excel file. What am I missing?

I've been trying other software, trials, to convert a 78 page PDF with 4 columns. Most mangled the conversion.

This installed and activated fine on XP 32 just fine. Converted all 78 pages and columns were correct in Excel!

downloaded and register with no problems. However, when I convert any file including their samples windows box comes up saying a problem arose and it is shutting the program down. Any suggestions as to why?

I installed it and converted a PDF file to Excel. The conversion was flawless.

I did the same conversion again with "Retain original formatting of forms" selected, and the resulting Excel file was not formatted very well - rows were too small to view all the text and has to be manually dragged to make the text viewable.

However as I said above the conversion using the default setting was flawless. Also I really like the ability to do batch conversions - which other PDF To Excel converters I have used have lacked.

I highly recommend this software.

Loaded fine on WinXP, SP3. Appears to be totally accurate. I converted an Excel worksheet (.XLS) to .PDF and then used PDF to Excel converter to create new spereadsheet. Compared the two my taking columns of numbers from each and placing in a new spreadsheet. Subtracted one colum from other, match was 100%.

The onkly problem is that I cannot get a keycode so it only works with 5 pages of data, stuck with thetrial version.

#26 John:

A scanner creates a graphic image. You can't convert a scanned image into a spreadsheet or other document as text and numbers without using OCR. "Optical Character Recognition" tries to recognize text from its shape etc., and create editable text from the image. You might have OCR software that came with your scanner for that purpose.

This program converts a "pdf" file that was saved from a spreadsheet or document -- not one that was scanned from paper without OCR. That's probably how the "samples" were created. Either make or find some pdf's that weren't scanned to test it on.

Hope this helps.

TO try out AnyBizSoft PDF to Excel Converter I *printed* a couple of PDF files using the free PDF Creator -- one was a TV listing [titantv.com], & the other was the default tool listing at videohelp.com... I wanted to see how today's GOTD worked with tabular data that wasn't so perfectly arranged like in the samples provided. Results were mixed, but if/when using the option to "Retain original formatting of forms", it was imperfect but usable. The resulting .xls files all opened in Excel 2007 with warnings, & with "Retain formatting..." on, only the 1st page had cell borders mimicking the original .pdf. Without the "Retain formatting..." option, anything above the web pages' table structure really threw this app for a loop, though if you were desperate enough I suppose the data could be made usable once you scrolled past the twenty something mostly empty columns. Long story short, like most all PDF converters, what you get out of AnyBizSoft PDF to Excel Converter depends a Lot on what you feed it. When I took the same TitanTV page, *printed* just the table to .pdf [Print Selection], without headers/footers [IOW made it look more perfect like the included samples], results were Much better.

That out of the way, AnyBizSoft PDF to Excel Converter needs to be fully installed to register -- if you have problems with it not accepting the key, I'd suggest looking at the installation process 1st [i.e. maybe it didn't work properly]. [Extracting all of the files from setup.exe the app ran, but wouldn't register -- after running setup.exe registration worked OK -- after restoring a registry backup, the (again un-registered) app registered fine --> while this may not be the cause of every registration problem, if one or more files aren't correctly created / configured during install, registration will not work.]

The setup file itself includes the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime install file [vcredist.msi], though for me, monitoring install, it did not run -- Personally I dread that particular setup file, because installation setups for other apps have used it in ways that screwed up Windows & Windows Installer for me. That file [vcredist.msi], & IMHO several others that are unnecessary once an app's installed are carried over into the program's folder -- of the total 260 files, 25 folders, the "PDFEncoding" sub-folder stores 181 files, 15 folders, that are mainly alternate language related... taking up ~7MB out of a total ~20MB isn't a terribly big deal, but I would have been more impressed with the developers if they made it an optional download, or gave me the option during install etc. InstallWatch Pro recorded roughly 400 new registry entries created, but I only saw 7 changes that raised an eyebrow -- Explorer shell folders were either deleted or changed, & I didn't/don't see a reason for that.

if you want my email your should ask for my email not just my ''mail.''
I am tired of trying to get these 'free' programs to work. Today's was especially annoying and I could not understand how to install and run the program. Since there is so much TRULY FREE stuff on the internet, I am through bothering with GAOTD. There's always a trick or a password or handing out my info etc. I have not been able to get one program to work correctly. I download to an external to keep my Lptp clean. When I come back later to run the program it does not work. Please take my account off your data base and send me no more fake free programs!

Installed on Windows XP, no problem! Tested on an order receipt in PDF format. Converted to an Excel file - perfect! This software will save me absolutely hours trying to convert orders to my Excel file, which involved lots of parsing formulas and editing for character delimiters! THANKS GOTD!!

Installed on Vista Ultimate 64-bit with no problems. (Please remember to follow the instructions in the readme... when you get to the registration pop-up, press the button to request the keycode. You'll get a long hex code in a few minutes.)

I successfully converted a 40-page financial PDF that was full of tables, and it worked well, converting the company names and prices correctly. A minor misalignment with some of the column headers was easy to correct.

By coincidence, yesterday as part of my work I to convert Excel files into PDFs, so I had the perfect PDF files to test this on. The conversion back into excel files worked perfectly; no formatting issues at all. I then went to see if it could extract/convert a table embedded in a journal article, and it could not. So, obviously this limited in what it can convert. But still, even if it's only useful for some documents, can't beat free!

Win 7/32HP: Installation and registration without any problem. Downloaded bank statement as PDF (make sure you check the box to keep PDF format) and converted, quickly, to XLXS. The converted file was acceptable for a paperless record; but was not good enough to print out an accurate copy. Worked better on a less structured PDF form. I could not see any improvement from previous version.

Downloaded and installed fine on XP SP3.
Tried on a rather tough pdf and it seemed to run fine but ended up with an Excel file with blank sheets. One sheet for every page in the pdf.
It's a no-go for me. Will uninstall.

PDF to Excel installed as expected.
I noticed the offer of a free PDF to Word v3
I opened the GOTD version of PDF to Word I installed to determine the version number and it displayed a message that the PC World trial had expired and dumped me to the buy version 3 page.
I hope this PDF to Excel hangs around a bit longer for my very infrequent but appreciated use.

copy of email sent to support@anybizsoft.com
Subject: AnyBizSoft - PDF to Excel - No visible window

I just downloaded this from GOTD and got the registration - entered with no problem.
System in use: WinXP SP3

Having done this I can see AnyBizSoft PDF2Excel in my Taskbar but it has no visible window. It appears in Alt+Tab list but trying to activate it (eg. by clicking on taskbar button) just shows a brief flash (as if the window were opening) but nothing appears.

Usually when I see this it means that window has been created with off-screen co-ords.
I tried to use Ctrl-click context menu on the taskbar button to "find" the window but *NO RESULT*
- Move: The 4-arrow icon expected does not appear..
- Size: This option is grayed out.

In hopes that somehow bad co-ords had been saved in config.ini I closed PDF2Excel, renamed config.ini - BAD IDEA - I guess registration code is stored in it because it asked me to register again and when I supplied same email and the reg code you sent me it rejected it. I removed the new config.ini that was created and renamed the old one back to original name. It stopped asking for me to re-register but still doesn't create a visible window.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. It did not require re-entry of co-ords but still no visible window.
(I'll post this to GOTD site as well)

Regards ... Alec (buralex@gmail& WinLiveMess - alec.m.burgess@skype)

6 Never commented here before. But really wanted to share that this
is a great piece of software. Thanks GOTD.
7 No Links with developer. Cannot understand why ASHraf notes poor conversion

Download, installation, activation and registration went off without a hitch on Vista x32. GUI is simple and program is easy to use without reading online Help File.

Actual use of program - I was able to convert the two PDF sample files provided by the AnyBizSoft developer (1 encrypted and 1 unencrypted) - and both files were converted accurately, with the resulting documents retaining the tables of the original PDF files. The program (in the options section) allows users to select whether or not to maintain the original formatting of the source files in the resulting files - so, this designation is left up to the user's desired specifications.) The resulting output was good.

@1 (Ashraf) - it would be helpful if you would specify what these "couple of bugs" are for the benefit of GOTD users who read this comments section and who don't have time to read your detailed review on your website. Also, the right-click context issue mentioned in your "The Bad" section, is not really that bad (in my humble opinion) as users who don't like the program would probably uninstall it from their computers anyway, and those users who do like the program would want to keep the "right-click-context" setting in place for their use and benefit.

Summary: Program is easy to use and produces accurate output that retains the source file's original format (if designated as such by the user in the options setting) - so two-thumbs-up for today's offer. Thanks much, GOTD and AnyBizSoft.
