SOURCE: pdf to excel

Have you tried selecting the text, and then copying that text and pasting it into an Excel spreadsheet?

If the text is not selectable, using Acrobat's text selection tool, you will need the password to be able to access it.

When I attempt to convert a word document into an PDF file I get a message "missing PDF maker files" I'm given the option to say yes or no to "do you want to run the installer in repari...

From the info you provided, seems like your Adobe Acrobat Professional wasn't installed properly or there are some missing files.
If you have the installation file, try installing the software again.
(When you click on Yes, nothing happens because adobe cannot find the Installation/setup file on your laptop.)
If you do not have the Adobe installation files, as an alternative download CutePDF writer. Its free and hardly takes any space on your pc/laptop (<4MB)
Direct Download Link for CutePDF
Once downloaded, install the software and follow the steps below:
1. Open the Word file you want to convert to pdf
2. try to print it
3. before printing, the time when u have to select your printer, select Cute PDF Writer as shown in the image below
4. Click on print


5. The Word document will be printed as a PDF file and you'll be asked where you want to save it :)
6. Choose your destination.
7. When the printing is completed, you can open the pdf file in Adobe PDF reader
* You don't need a printer to do this
* You can follow the same steps and print excel/powerpoint files to pdf (or any other file type that you can "print")
Hope this helped!

Kurzweil to pdf

I use OpenOffice to convert files to PDF... It's fast like saving a file...
It's a new Open Source similar to MSOffice... Once installed you can open MSOffice files in there at OpenOffice Writer. At the top you see a PDF Icon... that's the converter. Anyway explore it, it's easy to use.

Cannot open pdf file with acrobat 8.0

I would suggest using an uninstaller such as "Your Uninstaller" or a equivalent software to uninstall all versions of acrobat, then reboot, re download a fresh copy of V8.0 and try again. Or you could just revert to V7.0 and all should be good.

I hope this helps!

PS: If you weren't having any issues with V7.0? Remember the adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
