I’m having an issue with a project i’m building now. I’ll give you a short briefing of it:
I’ve a scanning system called Kodak. When I scan any document, the system applies an OCR on it and gives me a PDF (with ocr), a TXT (with the extracted text from PDF) and a CSV with some metadatas inside.
What am I trying to do?
I’m build a RPA that extracts the data that I define (Name, birthdate, so on…) from the TXT file but I’m having an issue with REGEX because my OCR extraction isn’t 100% reliable. How could I deal with this issue in my automation? I thought about Try Catch activity, but I don’t know if it’s gonna work.
What I want?
When my RPA finds some regex that doesn’t match or doesn’t exists, it just ignores that.
When it works flawless:
When it comes with some issue, usually: Assign: Object reference not set to an instance of an object:
OBS: The one above is what I want my RPA to ignore and keep going.
