It's undeniable that Word is one of the most popular (if not the most popular) document format in the world today. It means that most of the computer users use Word to edit their documents. Unfortunately, Word has one big flaw. The highly editable nature of it makes it impossible to keep the consistency of the formatting across different computers. To do that we use PDF.

That's why PDF is popular for sharing documents across different devices and platforms. PDF will give you the same look and feel of the documents no matter where you open them. The vow to keep the formatting consistent is why PDF is by design difficult to edit. PDF also gives users extra features to protect the documents by passwords.

The problem arises when you need to move between these two formats. While creating a PDF from Word is as easy as "printing” the Word document into PDF, extracting data from PDF to Word is much more challenging. The difficulties are multiplied when the PDF documents are password-protected.

But fear not as there are tools to help you do just that. Let's look at them.
