Option1:  Click on the little camera icon or goto to "Tools --> Basic --> Snapshot Tool".  Click and drag the mouse around the items you need and your picture will be there.  Then paste into Excel (cntrl+v)
Option 2:  I have this utility called "Zapgrab2.exe" extremely useful.  Do a Google search and you will find it.  it is a 25KB (not MB) executable file which comes in handy for reports.  You can select anything from any application and it will copy to clipboard which you can paste into almost any application.

Subject: PDF to Excel

Is it possible to import a *.pdf sheet into an Excel worksheet like a picture?

I mainly use Excel for calculations and it would be nice to include individual sheets from ASCE 7 (eg Table 1-1), and other references, on their own tabs for easy access.
