Hi friends,

I want to convert the pdf file into word file .

I just try to convert a PDF file to Word but i m not able to edit it. The PDF is an image file of some kind. It contains a grid with headings and contents that I would like to be able to edit or somehow convert to text. I was able to create a JPG of the section I would like to edit, but I cannot do much with that. It would be too difficult to edit as an image file in Paint or similiar software. I have already tried some online sites to convert the JPG to text. The only thing I get back is a comma and sometimes a parathesis. Are there any suggestions on how I can convert the image file into a format that can be edited in Word?

please give me your suggestions.

I am exporting info from Filemaker to an excel file and the file that is exported needs to be in a certain format. What I need is some tips and tricks on how I can make this work in excel.

Hi All

Another posting to this reliable site (my saviour)

I didn't think it was possible but later understand that it is - my query is
I want to print a worksheet in a corperate format, it contains prices and unique product code, but I would like to add a product image to the product code line. I was told that I could do this from retrieving the relavant image from a image file?

Is this correct, if so how would I create an image file in excel or indeed in any other app and how would I instruct the app. to import the correct image file, using a vlookup?

Any help,or guidance would be truly appreciated?

Thank you in advance for your valuable time

My overall goal is to have an image both displayed behind my cells (I'm using Format->Sheet->Background) AND to have said image print (I've added a 2nd version of the image to my header). This mostly works, except that the header image is being cropped on the far left and right edges.

I am running Windows XP with Excel 2003
I have the file set to landscape with 0.25" margins on all sides
The header image I'm using is 6" tall by 10.5" wide
I cannot attach my file for reference due to sensitive data, though I could replicate a similar one if requested

Any help would be much appreciated.

I need a macro that will only find formats mm:ss and not format hh:mm:ss and then convert mm:ss to hh:mm:ss.

For example:


It searches each and then only finds the 58:46 and then converts it by taking 58:46/60 and giving 00:58:46. I need to do this since some are in hh:mm:ss format, while others are in hh:mm format. Unless there is an easier way to convert just the mm:ss format - and right clicking and formating isn't working.

hi all,

i have a few questions:

i am trying to convert this format:

4/20/2008 14:00

to this:

April 08, 2008 14:00

1) I don't see any way to format that so the time is still included?

2) when the initial format is UK format (20/4/2008), I don't have any option to convert it at all. when i try to convert it, nothing happens. no issues with converting format with US dates.


I have an embedded word document that misteriously changed into an image.
This image is not a word doc converted into a picture (i.e. like I convert an
embedded word doc by right clicking and selecting 'image object', 'covert',
and then select to activate as a word doc.) but an actual image as if I
inserted a picture. Need to turn the image back into a word doc so I can
recover my work. It would also be nice to figure out how I am changing to an
image, amost seems like a bug since it has randomly happened twice.

I've got a variable path for a file stored in a cell inside a worksheet that I need to convert to the old dos format (no spaces).


From c:\Awesome File\FTP\My Awesome File.txt

to c:\Awesom~1\FTP\My~1.txt

The actual path/file name is much longer and is determined by multiple fillable fields, cells, and drop down menu's so the only feasible way at the moment seems to be that I need some code to convert the file/path name all at once.

After doing a little searching on google I came up with several that could determine the short path name of the actual workbook, but none that could convert a path that was different from the workbook.

hello Forum,
I have the following problem:
I get an Oracle txt file with the data i need to run a report.

the problem is that the layout format is not always the same ( mainly due to tab alignement).

i have made a print screen where i have 2 different files with different layout:
-in the first image the Name1 client column is overlapping the Beleg-Nr column; in the second it is shown correctly.

i have recorded a macro for the 2nd file to format the report : to apply the text to column functionality using the tab reparator.
the problem is that if i use the macro to format the 1st file, i get the following output.

I have a excel spreadsheet which has many images (500+) in one column, each row. Each image represents a status (there are approx 5 different images). As I would like to be able to sort the spreadsheet, I was wondering if there was any way to convert the image to text. I did some research and the only way I could see is maybe using the alternative text (each png file has different alternative txt depending on the image). I cant find any way just to display the alternative text instead of the image in each cell, so I guess a macro is the best way

When I select on image it says the pictures name is "Picture 1", therefore I would like a macro what selects Picture 1, gets the alternative text, and pasts it in column I, then moves on to "Picture 2" and so on, till they are all done. Not every row has an image (eg. it could be rows 10-30, 50-75...)

Any ideas?
