Project Description:
I have about 1000 PDF files that contain a list of products. For each of these PDF files, I require you to match the product name with a *similar* but not identical product name in a spreadsheet (which I will provide to you). If you find a match, you will need to copy part of the PDF file name in to the spreadsheet on that row. Each PDF file will be mapped to one Excel file, so you will produce about 1000 spreadsheets.

I will send you about 1000 PDFs files, a template spreadsheet, two example spreadsheets to demonstrate what I'm expecting and a short document outlining the process to follow.

In order to ensure accuracy, I would like the winning bidder to complete 5 PDFs first, to check my instructions are clear enough, and any rework you may have to do is kept to a minimum.

Accuracy is more important than time.

I've added a ZIP file containing the template Excel file, a sample PDF, a completed spreadsheet for the PDF, and a screen shot showing how the data is entered in to the spreadsheet.
