Data Scraping Problem


What does this error mean?

You are trying to read a PDF with Data scraping @ADITYA_MUKHERJEE?

We have activities to read the PDF right? why don’t you use those? And the error is due to the changes in the position may be which will change the selector

Selector Issue … After getting the issue Try to Inspect the element in attach browser … Observe it is same as previous one(You should copy the previous one ) … If anything changes in Selector use wildcard

Yes I was using data scraping to read pdf.
using data scraping I am able to get all the data in a tabular form in excel.
Do you suggest any better way?

@ADITYA_MUKHERJEE What is the Data you want from the PDF file?

POP2.pdf (66.7 KB)
This is the PDF I want the Data Fields PO NUMBER, PO DATE, CUSTOMER NAME, ADDRESS, ITEM NUMBER, ITEM DESCRIPTION, QTY, MRP, UNITT COST, TAXABLE AMOUNT, CGST, SGST, IGST, TOTAL AMOUNT, PAYMENT TERMS.

Also if two Data Fields are in the same column I need to separate that also.

@ADITYA_MUKHERJEE Can you Highlight The Item Number and Item Description in the PDF, I couldn’t Find it, and if you want to Extract the Table from PDF, You can use PDF To Excel Activity. Check This :

The Rest of the Fields which are not present in Table can be Extracted through Regex
