Converting PDF to MS Word

  STREETWORK 18:09 01 Oct 2007

Hope someone can assist with this.

After googleing for a free pdf to word conversion software all I find is free to download, pay to use.

So if any kind person knows where to find such software (free) please let me know

Thanks Vog.

I should have mentioned that I need to preserve the tables and layout if possible. The link is one I have tried but only allows for text to be copied and pasted into word...

If you are anywhere near my home, you are welcome to get in touch with me via my yellow envelope with a view to coming here to do your conversion on my PC. I have the full program PDF Converter Professional.

I am in the Portsmouth area in Hampshire.

OK - sorry I can't help then. Unless, perhaps if it is not personal/confidential, you might like to email it to me - I could then convert to Word .doc and return it via email. Or if it is already something on-line - like for instance click here
I could download it convert and email to you.

Failing all the above - Good luck anyway ...

A thought, but could you use an OCR program to scan the printed pdf document back into Word?
Not ideal but a lateral approach!

Posted this query a few years back with not a lot of success. I was pointed to this site click here
which is still valid. It's a free download for a month and then 28 Euro (£17) for a single user license if that's any help to you.

Thanks for kind offer Technotiger. They are sensitive.

I have found many that allow a free download, then to use it money must change hands.

I'll click Resolved for now and see if any friends have such a program...

Ok - why don't you give csqwared's link a go - it quotes a 'Unlimited' 30 day trial.
