How to convert PDF to Excel with Docs.Zone

09 February 2015

On occasion you might need to convert a PDF to an Excel spreadsheet. You may need to add data, or simply change some information on it. Docs.Zone allows you to convert PDFs to Excel without the hassle of downloading a program and risking compatibility issues.

To begin, you must first create a Docs.Zone account. Once you've set it up, you can log in.

  • Choose the "PDF to Excel" tab.
  • Click on the blue "Select files..." button and browse your computer for the PDF you need to convert. If desired, you can pick more than one file to convert at this time. If not, you can still add more files using the "Add files" button.
  • Click on the "Start" button and the process will begin immediately.
  • When the file is ready, you can access it by clicking the "Download" file. It should be in .xls format.
The advantage of Docs.Zone is that the format of the document won't change. Everything should be exactly the same as the original PDF you chose. You will find that converting the file will save you time copying and pasting PDF information to an Excel sheet (we've all been there before!). Best of all, Docs.Zone can be used to convert PDFs into other documents such as Word and JPG images. You can also use Docs.Zone to merge various document types into a single PDF document for easier browsing, or even save a web page into a PDF so you can see it offline, or if you lose your Internet connection.

The advantages of using a PDF file are many. There are very few compatibility issues, less computer storage is needed to keep them on file, and you can prevent others from using your documents for unauthorized purposes. If you have a small business and consistently need to write or change files, then Docs.Zone can help you save money on costly software that doesn't always deliver results. In addition, if you get stuck using Docs.Zone, there are clear instructions on each tab, making it easy for even those of us who aren't well-versed in technology to use the service.
