Hi @Pratik_Wavhal

Am using a assign Activity. Does that mean i need to install the Regex package

Hi @RPA_Dev09

Yes
Bcz it gives you the UI for setting the flag as i have shown above.

So for that use the activity “Matches”.

Hope this may help to solve your issue

Thanks @Pratik_Wavhal how ever am not getting the correct results. Please share the sequence you used to test on your side using the example pdf screenshot

@RPA_Dev09 Share the extracted example string and output you are expecting from that example string

Please create your topic for this…


I can’t share the exact PDF company policy. But the screenshot attached is similar to the PDF am reading. Am using Read PDF text activity. I want to get “John Smith X System Developer”. But using System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(DataFound,"(?<=Customer:).*(?=Company:)").value am only getting “John Smith X”. Hope the information provided is clear.

Thanks

“DataFound” being the output of the ReadPDFText activity.

Hi @RPA_Dev09

Actually you are working on Original PDF so you can preserve the format while reading PDF.
But in my case you shared the Img for that data. So working on it with OCR while screen scrapping the data wont be der in the same format as it is der in the img. The data gets scribbled and output comes in single line as i have shown you below.

So i myself have write the data in same format on the Regex editor as it is der in img which you shared and then applied the regex on it. So then it work for me that i have already showed you in earlier posts.

In that way i showed you the output that work wid me. If I have the PDF then only i can make workflow.
Hope you got it what i am saying.

Hi @Pratik_Wavhal

I got what you said. i have recreated the PDF file that is similar to what am working with. I tested it, still get the same results as mentioned before. Tried to upload the file but am restricted. Please use the google drive link to get the file.

Thanks in advance.

Your case may be easier to automate a pdf reader instead of reading it as text:

Hi @bcorrea

Which activity did you use for this?
