How Can PDF Table Extractor Help Me?
If you've ever tried to do anything with data provided to you in PDFs, you know how painful it is, there's no easy way to copy-and-paste rows of data out of PDF files. PDF Table Extractor allows you to extract that data into a CSV or Microsoft Excel spreadsheet using a simple, easy-to-use web interface.
Caveat: PDF Table Extractor only works on text-based PDFs, not scanned documents. If you can click-and-drag to select text in your table in a PDF viewer (even if the output is disorganized trash), then your PDF is text-based and PDF Table Extractor should work.
Security Concerns?: PDF Table Extractor is designed with security in mind. Your PDF and the extracted data never touch the net -- when you use PDF Table Extractor on your local machine, as long as your browser's URL bar says "localhost" or "127.0.0.1", all processing takes place on your local machine.
PDF Table Extractor works on Mac, Windows and Linux.
You can use PDF Table Extractor to turn PDF reports into Excel spreadsheets, CSVs, and JSON files for use in analysis and database applications.Screenshots and Animations:
