A reader of the blog recently contacted me and pointed me to an online PDF to Excel Conversion Service that is quite nice. What is unique here is that we typically see converters that specialize in moving (or converting) documents to the PDF format; not the other way around. I checked out this service and found that PDF files where tables were embedded converted nicely and represented both the row and column structure (as seen in Excel). Once the table is in the Excel format you can then implement your formulas and calculations as you would in an Excel spreadsheet.
