I am using another PDF reader to help me read PDF documents instead of Adobe Acrobat PDF document reader. What's more, using code to deal with the related PDF documents reading problem is too complicated for me. So you can choose some manual toolkits which allows users to customize its features according to our own favors to help you with the related PDF documents reading problem. Remember to check its free trial package first if possible. I hope you success. Good luck.

The easiest and fastest way by far is to use the full version of Adobe Acrobat. Yes, it's expensive around $800 for the license but most companies will find at some point they need to edit PDFs. You can also try on-line PDF to Excel converters (google it) but most only do a small number of pages. There might be other cheaper PDF editors around.
So basically open the PDF in the full verion of Adobe Acrobat and then File, Save as, select Excel. Then from there it is plain sailing. All the other methods I've looked in to are mega complicated and require lots of messing around.

I don't know which environment you are working in but if it is Windows you might find the PDF-text-extractor useful. There is a client based free version and there is a command line based version for USD 35. I went all in and invested the 35 dollars and built a routine that creates txt copies of all pdfs in a directory structure, thereby enabling the users to perform text-search and link back to the original pdf. Maybe that can serve as a starting point for you? Take a look at http://www.a-pdf.com/text/index.htm.
