Scan PDFs into Microsoft Word and Excel
US developer Investintech has released a product that can extract information directly from PDF files into Word documents and Excel spreadsheets.
Investintech's Able2Extract Professional and Able2Doc Professional PDF conversion products have been equiped with ScanSoft's OmniPage Capture optical character recognition (OCR) technology. In addition to Excel, Word and PDF files, the software can transfer data to and from HTML files.
Anyone who has tried to copy and paste from PDFs will be keen to see what the products can do - particularly if they're handing electronic accounts data.
