    converting pdf to a workable file

    Dan Cleveland

      I have a pdf file that I want to extract data from. One option might be to send the file to Adobe and have them convert for free, but this can't be an option due to restriction about sending the file outside of our network. Adobe 6.0 offers an option to put the file in text, but strips all of the formats, thus making it difficult to Monarch. I would like to shy away from paying for a program to convert, since I may only need for a short while. Someone else asked a similar question back in 2003 and one person replied that Adobe 6.0 (presently we have 6.01) can convert to Html and Monarch works well with Html. Does anyone out there know if this is true and how to do this or can anyone offer another solution that works well.
