Convert Image to Excel

Some Optical Character Recognition software are able to identify tabular data and convert it into either an embedded table or a spreadsheet file, such as Microsoft Excel. The data has to already be in a recognizably tabular format, that is to say divided into distinct cells, preferably but not necessarily divided by a visible border. Once a table is identified, the software will automatically recreate the cells in a spreadsheet file or in an embedded spreadsheet, depending on the output file type chosen on export.
