html or pdf to excel

By ITgirli ·
Has anyone successfully converted a pdf or html into an excel spreadsheet? I've heard many different ways, but none of them seem to work.

Omnipro 14

by support In reply to html or pdf to excel

I use Omnipro 14 to convert PDF to Word,Excel The software will also convert other formats like Word to Text. I have found it to be a very useful Program. For the HTML you might have to convert it to a PDF Document and the to Excel

You looking for a programmatic solution?, or one off.

Both can be done with some VB experence, but if its just a one-off, cut and past into a text document. If its well formated text (tables), you will be able to import into Excel as fixed length.

I don't really know much in the ways of vb. I was looking for more of a free download or little cut and paste tricks.

Cut & Paste

by tbragsda In reply to not a big VB person

You can just cut and paste. Past to a text document, and save. Open the file with Excel, and select Space Delimi{sic}. It will work fine as long as the tables from the HTLM are in good shape.

I have done this many times, and its a quick easy method. If you want to learn VB enough to get somewhere with the INET control...

tried it already

it's crap. thanks anyway. I've tried:
and numerous others I forgot to write down. I really don't have a time restraint on doing it, it's a side project of mine to see if it can be done successfully. Every single one i've tried has failed. I'm rather amused by it so far.
