Extract data from PDF files and export to CSV

Aug 7, 2015

Tabula, available for Windows and Mac, lets you extract data from PDF files, and it just got an update. The user interface got an overhaul and it’s now easier to grab data from multiple pages. I wrote about Tabula last year, but orgs continue to publish data in PDF files, and sometimes PDF is just all there is. So this is definitely a good thing.

Keep it in your toolbox.
