OCR to excel

Hi,

We receive over 300 PDF every month.  We have to open each one and enter into database.  The format is like this
Payment1    $100
Payment2    $200
Payment3    $300
Payment4    $400
Payment5    $500

My question i, is there a way to OCR it into EXCEL horizontally?  So we can dump it into db in one shot?  thanks

I use ABBY Fine Reader for such purpose and it suits me pretty well. Laying out the data in Excel comes later. A macro can help you there. Right now how is the output laid out in Excel at the moment?

I dont have that yet. Users have to open pdf and do the data entry.  thanks
In that case see this link. It will save you hours of manual entry :)

Try www.verypdf.com/pdf2txt/pdf-to-excel.html ... it is what big organisations use for their daily processing job.

the pdfs we received are image based.  verypdf seems to work well with text based pdf.  thanks

ABBY is the best OCR software as of date.
