Convert PDF to DOC

By dennisbv ·
A company that we get service bulitens from used to use word format and now they switched to the PDF (adobe format)the problem is I created a searchable database that our mechanics can search on specific models and then open it in word to view or print. So Now I cannot add the new bullitens to the database because they are a different format. So does anyone know how or it I can convert the bulitens from PDF to DOC.

If you get a copy of Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or later you can extract the text from a PDF format. Otherwise, PDF is made to be read-only.

Unfortunately with a PDF you can't go backwards. Once it is a PDF format you can't go back to Word format.

The first person said to extract the info from the PDF using Acrobat 4.0 or higher. If you do this you can extract it as a JPEG. Then open word and Insert the JPEG image and save the word document and now you can use it in your database.

Drake requires that you have a full version of Adobe Acrobat 4.x installed; it will not work with the free Acrobat Reader. This demo version will only convert the odd pages of your documents; even pages will display a BCL demo message. The full-version retail price of this product is $199.
