Good morning everyone,

 

I'd like to extract data from many PDF's which aren't forms. I can't see any option to extract data from pdf to an excel worksheet.

Is it possible to do it by selecting data we want to exctract ?

Yes, you can do it manually, one file at a time. To do so highlight the area with the data then right-click it and select Export Selection As - Excel Workbook. If you want to do it automatically then it will require a script that can identify the location of the data, extract it and then save it as a CSV file, for example, which could then be opened in Excel.

This is not something you can copy and paste from somewhere, it will have to be custom-made for you specific needs, and it's a complicated task. If you have Acrobat Pro then you could use it as a part of an Action and process multiple files, yes.
