    How to select text in a pdf document and export selected texts into excel columns

    callumc20123763

      I am hoping to find a program that I can use to select parts of text in a pdf document and export those into columns of an excel document.

       

      It is quite easy to copy and paste the data I want from the pdf documents into the excel doc, but I have 1000+ pdfs to go through for a research project, so it would be helpful if there was a program that could speed this process up or allow batch converts.

       

      I've tried Able2Extract, report miner and a-pdf but they don't seem to be able to do exactly what I want. The text in the pdf doc is not in tables, and it would be best to be able to just select or highlight phrases and then copy them into the columns of an excel doc

       

      Thanks
