If yes then try using “Data Scraping” which give you output datatable and you can use in excel scope,

Some experts please help with this. I am also facing similar error.

hey thanks for the suggestion. Actually the pdf I got is in tabular format, but the table borders are hidden…Also I need the final output in csv not in excel. So I guess there is no role for excel scope right??

write CSV takes datatable as input.

Data scraping wizard is useful. But I have more than a single page in my pdf. The number of pages in pdf are random.
