Inporting PDF files into Excell

New Contributor

Does anyone know how to import a PDF file (a form) into Excell?  I's desperately trying to find a way to adjust the margins in a PDF file and this was suggested as one way to do it.  Many thanks/Cece

As far as I know, the option is only available in Excel from Office 365

(version with subscription and in the foreseeable future with a high degree of probability to all subscription versions).

When you have the version,

go to Get Data / From File / From PDF / From PDF in the Data tab.

Select the file that contains the data to be imported.

Add a PDF to your Office file


Alternatively, if you don't have the version, you can use a third-party converter tool to convert the PDF file to an Office file format, make the changes, and then save the file back in PDF format. You can purchase a PDF converter from the Office Store.

You can also use Adobe Acrobat. See Adobe Acrobat for more information.


I would be happy to know if I could help.
