converting PDF to Excel


A friend asked me if I know any free software that can convert a PDF file into an Excel spreadsheet. She uses Windows 7 and is not familiar with Linux, but if said software is Linux-only, maybe I could download it and convert the file for her...

Never mind, I found my own solution. I discovered Zamzar.com, and submitted it for conversion to .xls format there. It was e-mailed to me in a few minutes, in...some Microsoft Excel format. OpenOffice seems to indicate it's Excel 5 format.

A quick Google search ("free software convert pdf to excel") turns up this as the second result. It appears to be a native Windows program (just by looking at the screenshot; I haven't downloaded it or anything, I don't have Wine so I can't test it), so there's no need for an internet connection.

EDIT: Not sure if its free as in libre, but it claims to be gratis.

Can't she just copy and paste from the PDF into Excel?
