    Is there any way to copy a PDF table into Word? I've tried saving the PDF as a text file but that doesn't work. It put's extra paragraph marks from within the table cells so it doesn't work to import it or to copy and paste the text and then text to table because all the extra paragraph marks mess up the text to table.

    What happens if you do the following in Word:
    • Replace ^p^p with @@@@
    • Replace ^p with ^t
    • Replace @@@@ with ^p
    • Select the text
    • Select Table | Convert | Text to Table with Tab as delimiter
