The issue is hidden in fact that the table in your file has no vertical separators. Therefore table is not detected and the output gets split line by line. ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK does not provide you ways to change these settings. I can suggest one of the following workarounds:
• Export to .txt. Txt by default retains the layout of file, therefore the output is formatted like original.
• Export to .xml and parse .xml text coordinates manually. ABBYY does not provide .xml parser for data extraction, but you can implement it yourself.
If you are willing to extract data from such tables please consider using FineReader Engine, which will give you access to a wider specter settings. In particular, it will allow you to extract the data from similar files in the form of tables.
