If it's a PDf with a somewhat tabular listing of the reactions, you can copy, then paste special into Excel as CSV (comma separated values).  Then, you'll have to brute-force it for formatting or equations.

Can anyone recommend software for Windows converting PDFs to Word/Excel formats.  I have a list of reactions from a building manufacturer that I need to enter into a spreadsheet for the foundation design.
