Famous online PDF editor, the iLovePDF website also allows you to transform files of this type into editable spreadsheets. To do this, simply drag the document onto the platform. It is worth mentioning that the free version of the service allows you to upload only one item at a time. In the tests carried out by the TechTudo, the conversion worked perfectly and there were no distortions in the tables of the final file.

Simple and intuitive to use, the Smallpdf website offers a number of resources for handling PDF files, including converting to Excel. Users interested in turning documents into editable spreadsheets need only upload the document to the platform. Like iLovePDF, Smallpdf allows you to add one item at a time.

It is important to clarify that, if there are pages scanned in the PDF, the sheets will appear as images in the XLS file. If you want them to be converted into editable documents, you'll need to subscribe to the premium version, which costs $ 12 a month.
AltoPDF allows you to edit spreadsheets online after conversion Photo: Reproduo / AltoPDF
The Alto PDF tool (altoconvertpdftoexcel.com) turns PDF documents into Excel spreadsheets in seconds. The highlight of the site is the possibility to edit the file online after conversion, a feature that is not present in any of the competitors on this list. Alto PDF also showed good performance when working with more complex tables.

The easyPDF platform works similarly to its competitors, but it stands out for allowing the conversion of digitized sheets without cost. It is possible to upload the document from the computer itself or from cloud storage services such as Google Drive and Dropbox.
In the tests carried out by the TechTudo, the tool failed to convert more complex tables. EasyPDF does not preserve the colors and fonts used in the original file, so the look of the spreadsheet ends up being little faithful to that of the PDF. In addition, there were distortions in the formatting of some fields.

Sejda (sejda.com/pt/pdf-to-excel) is another online alternative for users who need to convert PDF to Excel. To do this, I need to upload one file at a time. Before downloading the final spreadsheet, the user has the chance to preview a preview of the data that will be extracted from the PDF. As with tests with easyPDF, Sejda did not show good performance in converting complex tables.
