Is there a good way to get info from .pdf to excel? I have tried to just copy/paste, but it puts everything in column A. If I try text to columns, there is just too many things on one line to separate.

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

There is software out there that will do this. Most of it you 'll have to buy, but there possibly might be some free ones.

You should be able to find information on such programs by searching the net, and this board, as this question has been discussed numerous times on this board.

I use Solid Converter which was a freebie with a PC magazine (UK) a while back.
