Tool to convert PDF files to office and vice versa

Hello all,

I am looking for a tool that will convert my pdf files to office document and after I edit them will help me convert them again to pfd.
If tool can convert the pdf into abiword format, still it can work for me.
Open Office writer is what I use, but Abi is also with me and I will not hesitate to use it.
If this option is built in open office?

Well, you can write .pdf files from OpenOffice, but at this point making them editable is another matter. I believe something like this capability is scheduled for introduction into OO 3, but that is not ready yet and I don't know anything more about it.

There is an online tool that can do some conversions (including pdf2odt):

Enter the site, browse your filesystem for the file you want to convert, select the conversion needed and input you e-mail address where you want to receive the conversion output. PS: I haven't used it until now!
