PDF conversion has become synonymous with everyday schedules in offices, classrooms, and homes. While PDF is the format of choice for individuals looking for portability and compatibility, it may be necessary to convert PDF to other file types for convenience, functionality, or presentation. For instance, PDF files may need to be converted to Excel form to enable calculations and creation of dynamic tables. In this article, we look at two industry-leading tools for PDF conversion.
