While the free Adobe Reader lets you view PDFs, you need a subscription to Adobe PDF Services to create PDF or convert PDF to Word or Excel. With an active subscription, you can use the Create PDF or Export PDF features from within the right-hand tools pane in Reader.
You can convert PDFs to Microsoft Word or Excel by using Adobe ExportPDF, a web-based service on Acrobat.com. For more information about the ExportPDF service, go to Adobe Export PDF page.
Choose View > Tools. The Tools pane is displayed on the right side of the application window. In the Export PDF panel, the currently open document is selected for conversion. Click Select PDF File to select another PDF document.
If you're not signed in, click Sign In in the upper-right corner of the Tools pane, and then sign in with you Adobe ID and password. After you signed in, your name is displayed in the upper-right corner of the pane.
