Prepare pricing or quantifiable information in a non-tabular format

AI Assist can process information stored in PDF files and website URLs. However at this moment, it cannot process data stored in a tabular or image format.

If your pricing or quantifiable information is in a tabular format, convert the information to a non-tabular format. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Automatic conversion using Data Analysis in ChatGPT-4 (recommended for a large volume of data).
  2. Manual conversion (recommended for a small volume of data).
Automatic conversion using Data Analysis

Step 1: Go to Data Analysis in ChatGPT-4.
