Is there any free utility that can enable me to convert my .pdf files to word and excel formats.
If there is no free such utility then the cheapest and the best one please.

If it's of any use to you, you can convert PDF files to standard .TXT files with the FREE Foxit program. Simply open the PDF file, highlight the required text, copy and paste into another program. You may have to reduce the pdf text in Foxit to fit the screen but it still copies and pastes OK.
Hope this helps.

Dear All
Please note that the programs you have referred me to are not free programs. I had asked for a freeware if possible.

If you check my input you will see that the Foxit Reader program is FREE.

not free, I'm afraid, but will definitely convert to Ms word or Excel. Costs about £10 Sterling.
