I’m trying to extract Invoice number, PO Number and Invoice Amount from an invoice PDF. Get OCR Text (including anchor base) returns an error “Scrape Returns empty text”, irrespective of using Google OCR or Microsoft OCR.
I attempted the following, which returned positive result
- Read PDF Text & Read PDF with OCR. But these activities are not useful, as I’m looking for specific details in invoice.
- Indicating the clipping region before every execution gives text. However, on closing and reopening the file, I get the same error. (Tried adjusting scale to avoid different resolution/ zoom level errors with vain)
Read other posts on this topic, but solutions are provided only to handle this error as exception through try/catch. But I need to extract these values.
Please provide your suggestion to resolve the issue and extract data successfully
