Hi @MitheshBolla ,

Have you tried the Extract Pdf Page Range Activity in UiPath.PDF.Activities Package.

We can Specify the Page Ranges to be Extracted and Convert those Pages into a Single Document.

Could you Check it out and let us know if it is the requirement.

To split one pdf into multiple i am getting data from pdf where on first page it tell
Page 1-9.
SO i need to split 9 pages in one pdf.
on 10 page it will be like 1-4
so page 10,11,12,13 need to be in one pdf

@MitheshBolla ,

The First Page I assume contains the details of the Page Ranges to Be Extracted.

In that case, We can read the First Page of PDF , then Use Regex To Extract the Page Range.

We would require a Sample data of the Pdf after it is in text form for enabling us to help you further.

If i use microsfot, or tessert or omni ocrs the data is not extracting properly, which ocr is best to extract pdf data with ocr?


If the PDF is a Scanned Pdf i.e it is containing images then it would be Difficult to extract data if the quality of the image is very low.

However, Give a Try using the UiPath OCR and Let us know. You may need to activate Enterprise Trial in Orchestrator and it needs the Document Understanding API Key.

yes i am having enterprise and pdf is low, can i read pdf with ocr activity ? without using document understanding concept?

@MitheshBolla , We don’t need to utilise the full DU Concept.

We just need the Extraction of data using the OCR.

As you have already mentioned that some of the OCR’s do not give the output as expected, the remaining OCR to Try is the UiPath Document OCR.

Also, when using other OCR’s, Keep the Profile as Scan and try with Different Scale values to Check if there are any better results.

@MitheshBolla Could you Provide us with this data in Text file?

Also try with other Pages where you have to Extract Page Range and let us know if it is in the same format ?

Hi @MitheshBolla ,

Apologies for the Late Reply.

It was possible to Match the Page Ranges in multiple pages of the Images. But it is also need to be verified whether Regex Expression used will be able to detect it in other Samples as well.

Below is the Regex :



You can use the Matches Activity to get all the Matches. You can then use it’s output to Check the Total Count or the Values that were matched using the Below Expression :

String.Join(",",PageRangeMatches.Cast(Of Match).Select(Function(x)x.Groups(1).Value.ToString+"-"+x.Groups(2).Value.ToString))

The PageRangeMatches variable is the Output of Matches Activity.

Also we can note that, the Page Range doesn’t continue according to the Number of Pdf Pages but rather each Split Document Page Starts from Page 1. We also need to confirm whether this is the case for all the documents that you receive.

Hi @MitheshBolla ,

Apologies for the Late Reply.

I did manage to make a Workflow which would Split the Pdf Pages in the manner required.

But the problem is still due to the Extraction.

The Extraction is not fully capable of detecting the Page Ranges, may be due to the Quality of the Images.

In the case of 4th Page of the PDF, It didn’t detect the Page Range as it identified 1 as I and of is not detected by OCR.

Hence, If we are not able to extract the details properly, we may not be able to perform the Splitting properly as well.

The Below is the Extracted Text from the 4th Page of PDF. As you can see, the extraction of the Page Range is not quite well.

Below is the Workflow Developed so far. It gives out an Error now, Since the Page Ranges do not get Extracted properly.
