I have converted a pdf document to an Excel document so I can make changes to some content.

The formatting is not the same and I cannot print it out to look like the original.  

How do I get it to print like the original?

Converting is the first stage in rescuing pages from the hell of PDF. You then have to spend a lot of time getting the format as you want it. Sometimes it's quicker to start from scratch. PDF was not made for editing, and you should move heaven and earth to get the editable original if you can.

Is there a product that will convert a pdf to excel or word for editing, AND maintain all formatting

so that you can print it out to look like the original?

Sometimes you get it sometimes you don't. All  conversion is guesswork, and the products don't try to keep layout the same way.
