I was given roughly 100 single page PDF documents, each of which corresponds to a different subject. The PDF is a typed doument and I am able to copy and pate the indiviudal lines (which are in different places in the document, and not in table format) just fine but dont want to do it by hand. Below an example of copy and pasted text from that document. The forms are not "form fields". 

 

Document Text Copied from PDF:

Subject: 45

Distance: 1.06
Diameter A 48 mm

Diameter B: 45  mm

 

I want  to be able to export this informaiton from all 100 PDF documents into a single excel sheet to look like the below table with each row a different subject:

If the text in all the files has the same structure then it might be possible using a script and an Action in Acrobat Pro.

However, the script will have to be custom-made for this purposes, and that's not possible without seeing a sample file. It's also rather complicated.

 

If you're interested in hiring someone to do it for you feel free to contact me privately via [try6767 at gmail.com] to discuss it further, including the price.
