How can I move text from a PDF file into another program?

The ability to copy text from a PDF into word or other programs depends on the version of Adobe Reader and on the permission levels on the original PDF document.

If appropriate permission levels are set, you should be able to copy text either with your mouse or by using the Select Tool in the Adobe Reader toolbar.
