So I have this new pdf file and the conversion to excel is just horrible and unreadable.  Could this be the app as my source looks pretty good!

Thoughts on how to fix?

Because your PDF is a scan it can't be exported directly, so the application runs Text Recognition on it first, but the results are not very good due to its quality and structure. As a result, you get a very bad output. If you could scan the file at a higher resolution and produce a sharper image you might get better results, but that's about all you can do.

You can't. Upload it to a file-sharing website, like Dropbox, Google Drive, Adobe Cloud, etc., and then post a link to it.
