Very simple job find something, copy then paste

Closed

I have few 900 files that contain .PDF files (eBooks). I need you to copy a paragraph from each .PDF file and insert it into an Excel file in the column next to the zip file's name. I will give you an Excel file that contains all the names of the .zip files already.

Most, maybe all, of the .PDF files allow you to simply copy and paste the text from the .PDF file into the Excel file.

Requirements

=====================

The paragraph I want copied from each .PDF file must be a paragraph that describes what the main topic of that .PDF file is. I am going to use these as descriptions for these products in my store.

The paragraph I am looking for is usually the first paragraph of the actual content of the .PDF file.

I do NOT want a paragraph from the "Legal Notice" section.

I do NOT want a paragraph from the "Table of Contents" section.

I do NOT want a paragraph from the "Terms and Conditions" section.

The title of the ebook does NOT count as a paragraph.

Any extra formatting must be removed. For example:

After you paste the text into the Excel file there may be extra spaces or only 1 word per line. You must fix this so it is a properly formatted paragraph. This paragraph that you are reading right now is a properly formatted paragraph.

It is possible that some of the .zip files do not contain any ebooks or the .PDF file is not an eBook. For example: it could be just a "Read Me" .PDF file or an "MMR license" .PDF file. If you find any .zip file like this please just skip them and move on to the next .zip file. Do NOT paste anything into the Excel file for these types of .zip files.

When you are finished please return the Excel file to me. i'll confirm whether you are going correct.
