I need data entered from scanned images in PDF into an Excel file.
I will provide the original data in a pdf file, and a template Excel spreadsheet for entry, in which all row and column names and all text has already been entered; you need enter only the numbers.
There are 38 tables to enter: most have 52 rows of data, and 8 to 15 columns. The template Excel file is attached to this posting and the PDF original is posted at http://www.nber.org/~dfetter/social_data_OAA_recipients_1938-39.pdf.
Based on past experience with similar files, OCR will not work well (and certainly not on its own). It will likely need complete hand entry.
