Data tables in XPS files are impossible to modify or use them for building charts or diagrams. XPS is a PDF-like format that is good for everything except data processing. Your data sheets can overcome this shortcoming, if you convert XPS into XLS format. MS Excel will recognize such copies as native files and will make it possible to make any data transformations you need.
Total PDF Converter features this kind of conversion. The program helps to convert XPS to XLS in batch, when you need to work out lots of documents in a short time. Just group the XPS originals in one folder, and tick off this folder in a source list. Note that the program produces 100% copies of XPS sources without any additional formatting, just exporting their content into a new format. Tables will have the same items in every cell, without any mismatching.
If you are a novice and not sure how to convert XPS files using Total PDF Converter, here is a short guide:
Among the options you have two items: setting destination for XLS copies and selecting the items to render into XLS.
You can render graphics, shape (structure) and text in any combination. If you do not need images in copies, just uncheck 'Images' from the list. Then XPS XLS converter will skip all the pictures stored in XPS originals. For data tables it is a useful add-on.
