Before you buy an OCR program to convert the scanned image into something Excel can read, try the following (free) workaround. From the scanner, save your scanned document as a pdf Open the pdf in Word 2013 or later. Office 2013 has both an OCR feature and the ability to open (and convert) pdf files into a Word document. Edit the Word document, as there will surely be some errors in the conversion process Try to organize the data into a Word table Copy the Word table, and paste it in Excel You might think that you could copy from the pdf and paste it directly in Excel. You will find that even if the pdf is built from a digital original (rather than a scanned image), the formatting will get messed up in Excel. It pains me to say so, but Word is a lot smarter about this than Excel. If you first place the data in a Word table, Excel will retain its layout when you copy and paste.
This seems pretty straightforward to me. In PDF the first thing I do is read through the data first. I then do a sort to make sure there are no duplicates in the data. Then I read through the whole file one line at a time. I then copied and pasted the lines to a new text file. I then edited the original text file with a text editor to bring the formatting up to par with my original code. This process can be very tedious and tedious and tedious. Now we can look at the results. What I’m looking at is quite surprising. The first column is the number of unique words. The rest of the first column is a bar chart and the rest is a line chart showing the number of words compared to the total words in the document. The second column is the number of.
