How to handle different screen resolution in scraping different invoice template

Hi peeps, We have automate data scraping from different invoice format. First we create the template, getting the position of each field and map to a value. It will work well sometime and encounter the following problems:

  1. I need to manually click the pdf and click “fit one full page to window”.
  2. It will not follow the position I’ve assigned if I run to another pc resolution.

Hi boss Patty,

  1. First I create template on separate uiPath project and it will save the following:
    • csv file which contains the following data:

fieldName,Type,x,y,width,height,scale,titleSelector,contentSelector,seperator,colunm,regex
MC_Info,Region,-1,11,145,59,1,,,.*
Tax_Invoice,Region,482,5,136,29,1,

  - png files of what I have scrape. Invoice date, payment terms etc.
  1. Then I will run another robot to read the csv file.

  2. Insert to DB

There are times that I can capture all data, but when I run again some fields are missing and have the following errors:

Requestor:NOT FOUND\nmessage:Cannot find the UI element corresponding to this selector:

if position of the required Field is changing right.

Then try using Invoice and receipt processing AI using machine learning extractor you can easily avoid these kind of positions issues.
Tell me what field is changing in the invoice ?
