I'm trying to take some stats from the daily racing forms and copy and paste them to a excel spreadsheet but not having any luck. I want to use the data and do my own calculations. Just simple math but time consuming data entry sucks... I tried to convert the daily racing form to an xls file using the adobe software but it was a mess. Has anyone else tried to do this with any success?

If you are trying to parse a PDF file, there are many programs that do so.

You might first try the demo web page of PDF Parser (https://www.pdfparser.org/demo).

There are file formats available from DRF that are easily imported into Excel through Formulator.
