    i do not know of any PDF to Excel file conversion program, Mac or otherwise. Considering that PDF is a page definition language, it is not that easy to convert from PDF to Excel.

    What you can try is convert PDF to HTML or text, then import the HTML or text into Excel.

    Use this http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/access_onlinetools.html

    A quick google resulted in the following:
