What is the easiest way to extract data in acrobat 8 professional and retai

By mattlew62 ·
We have landers that are now sending us lists with multiple social security numbers in a single pdf with multiple pages, before they used to break it up into which departments they go to, so I installed acrobat 8 pro on the users machines, now we need to get certain lines of data within that document and make a single document for different departments out of that 1 document, i tried the crop tool and made a document from cropped image but it pastes it in the corner extremely small for some reason, and I dont see how you can extract that data and bring it into either word or make it a seperate pdf document, because it dosent keep any of the formatting????
Please help

P.S. we at least need to be able to edit the original pdf and be able to remove the text out of it while retaining the formatting and then resave it so we can send throughout the company.

In Adobe 8 Pro you can export the file to a number of different formats including Word, RTF, text, jpeg.
If you just want a portion of the file, instead of exporting the entire file, just use the text select tool and cut and paste that way.

In Acrobat Reader 7, again you can use the text select tool and cut and paste, or export the file to text only.

If you have Adobe Professional you should be able to edit the pdf directly.

Open the file.
From the menu, select Tools -> Advanced Editing -> TouchUp Text Tool
And then you should be able to edit the text directly.
