If you have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer, it would be an easy task to extract data from pdf files. Simply follow the instructions below:
• Open PDF with Acrobat
• If you are using Acrobat 5, use “Select Tool” to highlight the data you need, right click on selection
and select “Copy as Table”. For later version like Acrobat 9, hold down "Alt" key and select the
columns you need, then right click and choose "Copy as Table"
• In order to make the table look nice in PowerPoint, we have to get rid of extra spaces hiding at the
end of wordings in each cell. To do this, paste the table into Word and highlight it, select “Align
Center” and then “Align Left”. You will notice all spaces are gone.
• Secondly, make sure all cell margins are consistent
• Now we can paste the table into PowerPoint and start formatting
