Extracting specific lines of a PDF

I am trying to extract specific lines or cells from a PDF sheet. I am trying to use the Read PDF activity but the smallest range I can get there is 1 page. How can I get smaller ranges of data like one cell or line?

I doubt this is possible.

However, there is a workaround. You can try to:

  • use Split to divide your text
  • use RegularExpressions to extract the relevant data for you.

@alin.c.mihalea is correct. The smallest range you can get is 1 page.

However you were planning on identifying the text you want on the PDF can be done using the string variable you get from the read pdf activity, so it shouldn’t be much of an issue. Either way you’d have to figure out how to identify the specific portion of text you want

well this is quite possible, if you consider automating like Adobe Acrobat with the opened document and extract things like you do in other applications…
