Hi,guys.
I'm doing my paper with my teacher now,we are trying to convert 1500's of pdf files to word 2010 that has not been labeled correctly so using the built in feature that acrobat has does not allow the tables and colums to convert without going all over the place. Is there anyway to do this?
Hope to get answers as soon as possible.

@shuldon,
Copy and paste the content from one to the other.

Use the free Nemo PDF to word tool. It works great.

@shuldon,
1.Open the PDF file in a reader, for example in standard Adobe Reader.
2.Switch to the text selection tool.
3.Select the desired part of the text and copy it to the clipboard.
4.Run MS Word or any other editor and paste the text into it.
This is the simplest way to work out converting PDF to Word.

This looks like a good solution -- if you can get it to work. The other suggestions merely copy text to word, but this software claims to maintain proper formatting, which is what the OP is seeking: "Preserve original images, tables, charts, graphics, etc. positioned in the original places."

I downloaded the software, but could not get it to work. The interface is a little buggy.

@shuldon,
Might not be the best option for you, but just for fun, I used a free online converter...this one...to convert a .pdf cookbook (chosen since it has the tables/columns you mentioned). It did a decent job converting it to Word, even kept the table of contents links clickable, the tables and columns were formatted correctly, however, it couldn't handle the photos (they were omitted in the final document, but could be easily edited in, I guess).

There are tons of other options, of course, to be found through online searching...both free and shareware. I'd probably experiment with a few of those or ask the question on a couple of the tech forums that specialize in the subject.

Good luck!

@shuldon,
1. Open the PDF which you wanna convert in Acrobat.
2. Open the “file” menu in Acrobat and scroll down to “save as.” Choose “Microsoft Word” and then select the required version .
3.Click the “settings” button in the “save as” window, Adjust the settings, if need. Click “OK ”and press the “save” button to convert the PDF to word.
If you don’t install Adobe Reader, you may try to use a PDF to word converter and it can do help you effectively

@shuldon,
There are many types of the solution available, but I have a better idea for converting PDF to MS word.

First open your PDF file and then save as your PDF file into the MS Word format and select version of the Ms Word. By this process you can convert your PDF file into MS Word.
