Hi @muthu.m

Let me know what all fields you want to extract from the above img.
And if you can share the pdf here then it will be more easy to apply regex on it .

Hi @Pratik_Wavhal,

Im not able to attach pdf file.

Thanks in Advance,

Hi @muthu.m

Actually the problem is that the pdf img is in structured format soeven if do ocr on it then that will give me text all in seperate lines so virtually its hard to implement exact regex and to tell you.

It will be more best if you can upload pdf.

Or you can do one thing. read your pdf with preserve format as True and write the data into Notepad. And then you can share the notepad data here.

So here the problem for u is that you are not able to upload pdf here on forum or another reason bcz of some security reasons of that pdf doc ??

Bcz Forum is giving option to upload doc so. Below is the Screenshot for the same :-

Hi @muthu.m,
You can extract any specific field , text or tble from PDF using UiPath document understanding and intelligent OCR activities. Use form field extractor.
