Hi All,

Not to beat a dead horse here- I know there have been a lot of posts concerning PDF conversion to Word- but I seem unable to find any conversion tools that accurately copy a table as a table from PDF to Word. Of course I can copy a PDF table accurately using "copy as table" from within Acrobat Pro Extended but I need a conversion tool for our developers to copy tables from PDF to Word. Any suggestions? It seems all the PDF conversion tools will copy the appearance of a table into a Word document but it is not a real table that you can edit.
