I would like to parse the text from a formated PDF report into a CSV for import into Excel.

If I do a saveas the spaces are collapsed and the formating is not preserved making it hard to parse it out as fields.

Is there a way to define fields lengths and do save as .csv or some other method where I can preserve the fields ?

Given a PDF that was not based on a scan , and looks like this:

I want to define fixed length fields for the 6 fields and export into a csv.

Or is there a way to define the report layout and then  export the text as CSV ?

g,

I believe this is one for the (relevant) Acrobat forum:

This forum is about the forums themselves.
