This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic because they tend to become obsolete quickly. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve. Here are a few suggestions on how to properly ask this type of question." – Excellll, Paul, Tog, James, Moses
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Rather not - the PDF contains unstructured vectorized and rasterized data while XLSX is organized into columns and rows - all you can try to do is to select all on the source PDF in .e.g. PDF Reader or Foxit and paste into Excel - this will effectively run the conversion.
