If you do not know how to convert password protected PDF to Excel in Mac OS X or Windows, follow the steps below. Here I share the way I use to convert password protected PDF to Excel spreadsheet.

Part 1Best Tool for Converting Password Protected PDF to Excel

Obviously, we cannot and shouldn’t convert password protected PDF files to Microsoft Excel manually. We need a tool to do it for us. So here the prep work is downloading and installing a PDF app. I myself use Wondershare PDFelement and I strongly recommend it to you.

Wondershare PDFelement allows you to export password protected PDF to Excel each page in a single Excel sheet or all pages into a single Excel sheet. It has both the Windows and Mac version. Note: Wondershare PDFelement is also a powerful PDF editor that you can use and it converts password protected PDF files to many other formats like Word, Powerpoint, Text, Image and more.

Part 2How to Convert Password Protected PDF to Excel Spreadsheet

Below are the 2 steps of how to use Wondershare PDFelement to do the password protected PDF to Excel conversion.

Step 1. Import PDF Files

If you're using the Windows version of PDFelement, you can click the "Batch Process" button. Then you can see a pop-up window to let you add your PDF files. Click the "Add Files" button to browse your computer to add all your password protected PDF files. Or you can drag and drop files into the window. This PDF tool supports converting PDF files in batches, so you can upload an array of PDF files at a time.

If a PDF file is password protected from being opened, then after you upload it, a lock will appear on the PDF item bar. In this case, you need to enter the right password to unlock it. If the PDF is just password protected from printing, copying, or editing, just move to the next step.

Step 2. Convert Password Protected PDFs to Excel

Now you can customize the output Excel by changing its format version and selecting specific pages to convert. If the password protected PDF files are scanned ones, you will need to turn on the OCR feature. After customization, click "Start" to convert password protected PDF to excel.

Note: For the Mac version of PDFelement, you can find the Convert button on the top toolbar. And after clicking the button, you will also get a popup to let you add your password protected PDF files.


Bingo! This is how to convert password protected PDF to Excel spreadsheet in Mac or Windows PC. In a second, open the output folder to see the Microsoft Excel spreadsheets that Wondershare PDFelement has put here.
