Is it possible to convert automatically PDF documents into MS Word documents without copying and pasting each page?

If so, what Adobe version do I need?

Thanks for helping!!

possible with acrobat pro Jun 28, 2005

You may use Adobe Acrobat Pro. Then, all you have to do is to open your pdf and to save it as a word doc.

Otherwise, you can use such tools as Abby fine Reader for instance.

in both cases, the result needs a little bit of formatting depending on your pdf (tables, drawings....).

If you need to convert a pdf to word urgently, I may do it for you. Just contact me through my profile.

I have Acrobat 6 and FineReader 6, the latter is much better in converting PDF -> Word, plus the standard bunch of superb OCR features and accuracy. I would go FR.


Stay well

I have tried many tools and I find the above mentioned tool by far the most useful (and very reasonable price wise...), since it allows you to convert PDF files into Word or Excel. It also allows you to create your own PDF files (eg. C.V., invoices,...) from Word or Excel, which I find equally useful.
I would resommend the Pro version since this offers more possibilities for a reasonable price (99.99 USD).
Take a look at for more information.

All the best!
