I have a really simple project that I am struggling with. I think I have a strong grasp of the various tools to scrape data out of pdf’s but I am struggling to understand how to install scrapes within a loop.
I have an extremely routine pdf. Nearly Identical in all instances, that I need to pull 5 unique data points that appear in the exact same location each time. It’s a really standard invoice. I know how to program the 5 scrapes themselves but I don’t know how to install those within a loop.
You could summarize my problem in two questions:
How do you make data scrapes from a pdf more open-ended so that they will run on any files they are given via a loop regardless of the file name?
How do you send data that is scraped then to some type of database or holding array to later be dropped into an excel file?
Thank you all so much for your time, sorry to hassle the forum.
