To get started, you’ll need to create an account with PDF.co. It allows you to convert PDFs to a variety of different formats, including Excel, CSV, and JSON.

Next, you’ll need to create an account with Zapier. This is a web automation tool that connects different apps and services together, allowing you to automate repetitive tasks.

Once you’ve created your accounts, you’ll need to connect PDF.co to Zapier. This can be done by going to your Zapier dashboard and searching for PDF.co in the app directory. Once you’ve found it, click “Connect” to link the two apps.

Well, now that everything is set, let’s proceed to the actual tutorial.

Step 1: Create a Zap

Once PDF.co is connected to Zapier, you can create a new zap. This is a series of steps that define the automation task you want to perform. For this example, we will create a zap that automatically extracts data from Capital One bank statements using PDF.co.

To begin, log into your Zapier account and click the Create Zap button.

Step 2: Google Drive App

The first step in creating the zap is to configure the trigger. This is the event that will start the automation process. In this case, we will use the “New File in Dropbox” trigger, which will start the zap whenever a new file is added to a specified Dropbox folder.

  • Next, select the Google Drive app and choose the New File in Folder as a trigger.
