Thereâs no easy way I know of but having had to do that with a PDF report of lots of data (12 Pages), I had to select all tabular data on each page, copy it and paste into a text file. I then removed all commas before doing a find and replace on spaces and replacing them with commas. Finally I saved the file as a csv file and imported it into my spreadsheet. Even after all of that I spent a fair amount time aligning the data into proper columns. The previous assumes that PDF is text-based. If itâs image-based you need to OCR it first before doing what wrote. Then is it essential to carefully proofread everything to make sure the OCR didnât screw up some numbers.
Of course thereâªÔÇ have been occasions when the OCR didnâªÔÇ snowballed and screwed up the text, so you may want to make sure that all those pages arenâªÔÇ And OCR them as well. In order to have an easy to access and print-out guide in the back of your hand you'll want to have your PDF in A4 or Letter or A2 size paper (I used A4 on this) that you can fit in your printer (or print-out) tray. And thatâªÔÇ Is that for the above. If you found this post helpful then you will probably find that this topic really intrigues, and that IâªÔÇ Had a lot of free time on my hands when creating it, so feel free to have a look at all the other topics here.
