No... in PDF it is a read only document.

Only as an image, to my knowledge. Not with the data populating individual cells in Excel, to my knowledge.

I do believe that's a no-go for a direct transfer, however, you can copy tables from .pdf files and dump them directly into Excel.

You can save the text from the PDF as a .txt or .rtf file, then paste it into Excel. You'll have to reformat it though.

Try this:

Open the PDF.
Use the Text Selection tool to select the information to copy.
Copy the info.
Paste into Excel.
Excel should display a small "arrow" at the bottom of the pasted text.
Click it to open.
Choose the Import Wizard.
Follow the Wizard.

My version of the acrobat reader as a text select tool

You could probably do some fiddling with that to get the data into excel.

It might be a pain in the ass though.
