There are a number of utilities that do a fairly good job of converting pdf files to Word.

Try Googling 'convert pdf to word'

Hello All -

After a hard drive crash I learned that the only remaining copy of a
manual I'm working on is in PDF. The source is in Word. I have Adobe
8.0 loaded and have done a "save as" to get the manual to open in Word
but it appears that the resulting Word file is limited to an image of
the PDF content.

Is there any way that the PDF can be converted to a straight editable
Word document?
