I have a PDF file which contains a list of Veterans, their name, address, and other information used by the VA.
We would like to incorporate some of these folks into our local unit or at least ask them to change.

The PDF file looks just like columns of data somewhat like a spreadsheet you would envision.

What we would like to do is move the contents of this file into a spreadsheet. That way we could sort by
ZIP code of phone prefix or State etc.

Can anyone suggest a method for getting this data out of the PDF file and into some spreadsheet
such as the one available from Mozilla?

Thanks in advance.

Not so fast there buddy, you have some options :thumbsup:

There are tools out there that will allow you to convert files to different types. This is one such tool, a google search of "pdf to xls converter" should give you a list of available options, some free, some trial, some not so free.

Hope this helps
