Can anyone suggest an app that will extract a PDF (acrobat) file to plain

extract the numbers from them to put into database. The Acrobat "save to
text" yields garbage - probably due to the table format used.


You may want to try pdftotext (comes with oss10.3) or alternatively pdf2txt, a shell script downloadable from

-never used it myself but hopefully it works for you.
