I have an excel file with a list of people and a set of PDF files containing additional information about each one of these people. Each PDF file belongs to a different person in the list. And each PDF is named accordingly to identify the full name to whom it belongs. (ie:the pdf is named as each person in the list in inside the excel file)
The idea is to make the simplest possible software/script to automate the process of adding a new column for each different row (person) in the excel file with a specific piece of information contained in the PDF about that specific person. Note that the piece of information contained in the PDF files is always under the same section (of the PDF file) and always under the same subtitle (I will give you accurate information later). Therefore, it shouldn't be complicated to always pick the information under this category within the PDF file in order to add it to each row of the Excel file.
I will provide the excel file with the list of names and the PDF files to relevant freelancers. Please tell me your idea of the technology you plan to use for this task and why?

This can be done within 2 days max if the pdf has same format. I can create a winform (windows application)/ exe which can do this work. I willmbe using C# for this.
