How to continue on error, handle filename already exist and other questions



I’m trying to create an automation, that will do the following:

  • Perform OCR on all PDF files in Folder A
  • Grab 5 digit number from the PDF
  • Rename the file according to the 5 digits
  • Move the renamed files from folder A to folder B

Pretty simple stuff, I think, but I’m having some issues.

Most of the PDF’s are sadly handwritten and as such, its not always possible to get a 5 digit number. If this is the case, I want to skip the file and continue on to the next file.

Next issue: I will have multiple PDF’s with the same 5 digit number. In this case I want it to rename it xxxxx-1, xxxxx-2, xxxxx-3 and so on.

How would I go about this?

I cannot upload my work since im a new user, so I’m not sure how to share my current work.
