search and replace to find all tabs and replace them with a space?

I have a pdf file that I have to reformat, so I I can edit it and remail it. I can't upload a file showing the issue because I don't have 3 points-not sure what that means::>

My edit would take me months, there's almost 2000 pages in the document.

It appears the pdf has tabs in it (between the words) when I select the text and paste it into an ods file. I need to find each tab and convert it to a space....either that, or make the tab value to one so it will appear to be a space.

I can't figure out how to use either possible solution.

HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPP............
