Hello Jrzyk,

We apologize for the inconvenience caused, as per the description above, the formatting is not getting recognized when you convert a PDF file to Excel, Is that correct?

Try exporting the PDF file through the URL https://cloud.acrobat.com/exportpdf with your Adobe ID and password on a browser like Chrome, or Firefox, or Safari and see if this brings any difference.

I did try three conversions, one of them that had portrait orientation came

fine, The other two with Wide orientations your converter attempted to

break into two separate pages or scrambled image all together , there were

no setting options to instruct converter that original is in wide.

I used your advice to convert the file to Word first and now I see how convoluted the original document is, no wonder. Thanks for your help.
