Help, Please?

Is it possible to convert a file from PDF to Word when you only have the free Adobe reader?

If not, does anyone know of good freeware or shareware that will convert these files from PDF to Word?"

If the PDF has not been copy-protected you should be able to manually highlight it, copy and paste it into a Word document.

Thanks, hon. Unfortunatley, the info was protected. Ah well.

No, you can't convert a PDF back to Word with the free reader.

Only way I can think of to do it would be to print it out, scan it and go at it with an OCR. (Optical character reader)

PDF is actually a graphic format, not a text format. The reason it's universal, it is a picture of the original file.

Thanks, Elsa. Will have to go another route, then. **smiles**

Thanks for the offer, hon. Checking out some other options, first 'cause there's a lot involved here. **smooches**
