Read multiple PDF's with OCR (any engine)

im trying to create to read the text and image from multiple pdf’s by using OCR can any one help???


Welcome to uipath community

— as per the image
—We can directly use read pdf with ocr activity and we don’t need to open the pdf with start process
—then the output obtained from the read pdf is a string variable which can be written in a text file as you have done
You were almost done buddy
May I know what issue you were facing

Cheers @Myshudhage


thanks for the reply @Palaniyappan i have tried multiple time’s as i have no coding background i might have missed the logic i guess

im trying to extract the multiple pdf’s at tiime


Fine In that case
— use a assign activity and mention like this
Out_filepath = Directory.GetFiles(“yourfolderpath”,”*.pdf”)

Where Out_filepath is a variable of type string array
— now use a for each loop activity and pass the above variable as input change the type argument property as string in the property panel of for each loop
— inside the loop use read pdf with ocr and passbook the file path input as item the variable from for each loop which has the file name
— then get the output from the read pdf with ocr as a string variable and use write text file with file name being dynamic
Like this

Hope this would help you
Cheers @Myshudhage
