PDF to excel spreadsheet converter?

Hi, anyone know of any application I can use to convert a PDF to an excel spreadsheet.
I need to convert a pricelist and I've tried copy and paste and it normally would ask how I wanted the spaces to be handled, but not with the files I have at the moment.

Is there any method I should try?

Thanks

I didn't know that, but I am only using leopard at work. In the end of it all, I wasn't able to do it. The data was laid out like a table, but it wasn't being separated properly even when I save the data as a table or copy as a table, as I've seen on adobe's forum.

You should be able to change the selection tool to allow you to copy a single column at a time, then paste into your spreadsheet.

tried, but it would copy the entire data into one cell, and whatever separator I use wouldn't separate the data properly. I believe my co-worker is going to try to use a PC application.

I've never had a problem with copy and paste in the past, just this one time :/
