Extract values using Substring

Hi @lakshman

Try this sample:

  • Read PDF text -->output: pdf_txt

  • Write text file -->input: pdf_txt

  • Read text file --> output: txt_str

  • For each item in txt_str.Split(vbNewLine.ToCharArray)
    here item will iterate over rows in txt_str
    [Note : item can be filter using keyword(or regex)]

Hi @lakshman,
if its a single string then split it with NewLine character, then you will get a string array. Then use index to select the required line.

and if its a text file, use ReadAllLines() method, it’s return type is a string array, then do the same thing what i said above


I converted the pdf to word and read the tabular data. Paste it to an excel using a VBA Macro and then you can either created a data table or read cell by cell from the Excel. I was able to achieve what I wanted. I even got a logic to read multiple cells from the excel originating from a specific cell.

I can share the screenshots of the logic however cant share the code.
