How to extract particular data from a multiple pdf that have multiple pages using anchor base,find element,get text?

Thanks for your help @Steven_McKeering.

Im also just trying this Let me see.

@Nithish_kumar Check the AnchorPosition of anchor based activity in the properties panel. And also modify the selector of find element activity to extract data from multiple pdf.

@Vrushali_Gave I have checked the anchor position its top and also have selected particular region in find element activity, but still its not fetching the exact data.

@Nithish_kumar Used send Hot key activity and pass Ctrl+1 to make pdf in actual size.
Then again select particular region and Run it.

@Nithish_kumar Properly set the AnchorPosition as per your anchor data which you are goining to extract.

@Vrushali_Gave I have passed Ctrl+1 and made changes in adobe also after making the pdf to actual size i have selected the particular region and my data is like
Purchase Order
so I have mentioned position as top.Please correct me if im wrong.

@Nithish_kumar Yes it right. Are you getting exact result now?

@Vrushali_Gave Nope Im not getting so only posted query here.

@Nithish_kumar Getting data from an anchor base somehow it’s a little bit difficult. To get exact data we need to spend too many hours on anchor based. To set AnchorPosition find the exact location of an anchor that you have selected otherwise put it as Auto because some format of PDF files are able to extract data in Auto position but some format needs to be set exact AnchorPosition.

I hope this information will help you to get your output.

Regards, Thanks

@Vrushali_Gave Yeah you are right for some we need to give position as auto but here I have tried with auto and also with top but the required data is not fetched.

Thanks for your help. :slightly_smiling_face:

@Nithish_kumar Can you share any one of invoice?

@Vrushali_Gave Sorry I am not suppose to share those files but any invoice bill with multiple pages will do the work. I can implement the same here in my workflow.

@Nithish_kumar Take help from this workflow. I hope this will help you.

@Vrushali_Gave I have done the same workflow but if you see in this workflow the selected text is displayed in the activity.
But check my photo I have share above the pdf’s name is showing ‘Siemens’

@Nithish_kumar Yes you are right it’s showing ‘Siemens’ instead of ‘Purchase Order’

@Nithish_kumar Have you done the settings of adobe reader?
If not then click on edit->go to preference ->click on Reading->Make sure your settings are like the below-mentioned Screenshot.

Click on Accessibility -> Make you’re the two checkboxes should be checked as per below mentioned.

@Vrushali_Gave Yeah I have done the following changes before executing. But still not working.

@Nithish_kumar Then do work on anchor base and try to find the anchor position :sweat_smile:

yeah as already said tried with top and auto. :sweat_smile: let me try.

@Vrushali_Gave @Latika10011740 @Steven_McKeering Thank you all for your help. The pdf I was working with is not compatible with anchor base. So planned to go with regex and its done.
