|I have a large number of PDF files each containing a one or two page document |
which has been scanned in (using the OCR option). The documents are things like
letters and invoices. They all have a date fairly early on in the OCR text but the
date could be in dd/mm/yyyy format or 2nd April 2003, etc. I want to rename the
files by adding the date found in the file, converted to the standard form yyyy mm
dd, to the beginning of the file name.
|Hint: You need to Download and install "Replace Pioneer" on windows platform to finish following steps.|
|Note: some of the PDF files can not be parsed, and assume the date is in the first page. |
1. open "Settings->My Library" menu, and put following code inside the Entry:
2. open "Tools->Batch Runner" menu, and drag pdf files to the window.
3. check option of "set output filename" and set following entry to:
4. check filename preview at "output file column", and click "file rename", done.
