HOW THIS WAS DONE
37
1The author was involved in a sectoral budget analysis project last year and had familiarized himself with the structure of the 2014-15 budget book, and made an improved contents page for the same for the team's use.Most of the work in putting this document together was done by a crack team of highly trained monkeys, namely:
38
2It was felt that to even start with proper analysis, it was important to get all the data into a format like excel from where it can be sorted, filtered, totaled, etc.1PDFtk4all : to break the 623-pg pdf into its sections
39
3Plan A was to try and get a copy of the budget book in the original excel formats from which the PDF is created.2pdftoexcelonline.com : online PDF to Excel converter
40
4Failing that, this was plan B.3zamzar.com : online PDF to Excel converter
41
5A week before the budget book usually gets released, the author created blank excel templates for each of the sections.4Tabula : for precision table extracting
42
6Once the PDF was published on punecorporation.org website, it was downloaded, split off into its sections, and progressively each section was entered into its templates5AutoHotKey : Automation tool
43
7A key enabler here was the font-converter which took any text copied from the budget book and faithfully converted it to Unicode Marathi, which is what you'll see in this file. So now you can copy-paste stuff out easily.6Notepad++ : ninja text editing
44
8The converter was made some months prior with the help of Mr.Anunad Singh who is part of "Scientific and Technical Hindi", a nationwide group of enthusiasts who have been creating scripts to convert legacy Devnagri fonts into Unicode. https://sites.google.com/site/technicalhindi/home/converters7Some custom-made scripts to normalize text
45
9A host of different applications were used to get the data out from the pdf while preserving the tabular format as much as possible. There were different solutions for different situations encountered.8A converter for getting the text in Unicode Marathi
46
10Once each section was populated properly, the worksheets from all the files were pulled into this one document.9And a special vote of thanks to box/column select in PDF (Ctrl+Alt+click+drag), and the ever-faithful Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V

DIY PDF to TABLE conversion
51
1If you want to do multiple pages at a go, then you'll first need to extract just those pages from the bigger document. For that, you can use:
52
http://www.splitpdf.com/
53
54
2Then, this site will convert that pdf to excel for you.. it was pretty accurate for me:
55
http://pdftoexcelonline.com/
56
If not that, then my second choice is:
57
http://www.zamzar.com
58
You might have to clean up the converted excel, re-align stuff, etc.
59
60
3In case it's just a few pages, or if you need a specific part of the page only, then better to use Tabula:
61
http://tabula.technology
62
It's a portable software that runs on your computer, works through your browser. You visuzally draw a box on the page and it converts that to table. Either copy it to clipboard and then paste in excel using import text wizard, or save it as CSV and then load it in excel.

4Now, the converted file will have weird characters. Select all the cells, copy, and paste it here:
67
http://nikhilsheth.techydudes.net/files/PuneBudget_to_Unicode_Converter.html
68
Convert, copy, and in excel, select just the topmost cell of your selection and press ctrl+v. all the cells you originally copied out from should be replaced.
69
70
In case this was in ShreeDev font, try this:
71
http://nikhilsheth.techydudes.net/files/PMPML-Shreedev-to-Unicode-Converter.html
72
73
And if none of them are working, then send me the file.. i'll try to trace which converter it needs.

75
4.1The text might get garbled up in the pdf-to-excel conversion. If that happens (happened a lot here), then you have to copy-paste the text from the pdf. Press and hold the Ctrl, Alt buttons and draw a box (box-select) in the pdf-reader, that should let you select all the text in a column. First paste that in a simple text editor like Notepad.
76
4.2Where there was more than one line of text in a cell, you'll have to "unwrap" them back to one line. (switch off wrapping by Format > Word Wrap). Where there were blank cells, you'll have to press enter, enter to space out the lines. Once you're sure it's exactly as it was in the PDF, then you can safely paste it back to the excel. Use the adjoining cells to make sure the stuff is well aligned.
77
78
5For the figures, if they have commas like this: 52,50,000 then they'll be stored in the excel as text, not as numbers. To make them as numbers, select all the cells having the numbers, copy, and paste here:
79

80
81
..and press "zap commas". Copy the output and paste it back to the excel, with the first cell of your copied block selected.
