There are more than 8,000 PDF files containing PIPING ISOMETRIC drawings of a process plant. These isometric drawings contain Process and Instrumentation Diagram reference (P&ID). Each file has a unique drawing number. I want to extract this drawing number as as well as the P&ID drawing numbers in an excel file. There is no provision here to attach a sample file but it looks something like this.

P&ID: MD-513-1A00-EG-PR-PID-2035 ; DWG: MD-513-1A00-ISO-CWR-AA22-0401-23

Can anyone please help. It would save me a lot of time. Thanks in advance

  • This question is better suited for Super User. If you post it there, remove it here (no crossposting among SE sites). But you also need to write a better question. It is irrelevant what the data means ("PIPING ISOMETRIC drawings"), you need to describe what format the data is in. Adding a screenshot of the PDF might help. – user4293 Nov 7 '16 at 11:25
