I need to convert some PDF files into MS-word files so I can update them. I understand there are programs that do this but I personally don't have it. I have to make sure the images are also intact so I'm not sure how to go about that.

If anyone could do this for me I'd greatly appreciate it. You'll also be learning al the tricks you'll be converting for me.

Thanks

Ron,

You might try this program. While I've never personnally used it, I think its one of the most popular for what you want to do.

Ron,

Unless a PDF file is protected, there is usually no need for a special program to convert to Word. Open the PDF file in Acrobat Reader. Then hit the T (for text) icon in the toolbar. You can then highlight the portion of the text you wish to copy. Go to the Edit menu to copy the selected text.

You can then open Word, start a new Document, and then Paste your copied text into the New Document.

Images can also be transferred by using the "Graphics Select Tool" icon on the toolbar of Acrobat Reader, right next to the Text icon. You will get a cursor which will allow you to put a rectangle around the image you want to copy. Then go to the Edit menu, press copy. You may then go back to Word and Paste back into your document.

Hope this helps, PM me if you want more detailed descriptions.

Thanks a lot Jack. That's exactly what I needed to do I just didn't know how.

Thanks again and thanks to everyone else who offered to help.

Ron,

Better yet - if you want to preserve the formatting and everything, you just need Adobe Acrobat (not just the reader). Using that program you can edit the text right in the pdf and such.
