I want to extract text from pdf. I have converted it into a text file. But the field that i want to extract lies between non static parameters.
for example
Invoice1:ORIGINAL INVOICE Invoice Number Reference Number Invoice Date Customer PO#
1253864 02585 2/12/1999 5465365

Invoice2:ORIGINAL INVOICE Invoice Number Reference Number Invoice Date
1236484 02665 7/8/1999 5568912

I want to extract Invoice date from both the invoices. Is there any general solution?

@KeertiJ Use Regex or split by space than you can get invoice date. Refer for Regex

Only date will have the structure xx/xx/xxxx ? if yes then you can use \d+/\d+/\d+ to get dates in that format.

Thank you,Can you tell me in which activity do you use this?

@KeertiJ Can you attach sample text files

@RobertD no the date format changes.
And the customer po# also has to be extracted.
