Reading scanned pdf docs of different formats to extarct details

I have a requirement that i need to read the net pay field of different formatted salary slips from a scanned pdf document. Please suggest the best way to do it…

Use “read pdf with Text” activity. It will fetch you string. Perform string manipulation to get your desired field.

Alternatively you can try “Get Text” activity as well.

If the document is scanned as a picture you can’t use read pdf with text. Its just in a pdf format but that is not a real PDF.
First use read pdf and see if you have a string as a result. If not then I think you would have to use this:

You can use flexi layout if it is complex!


Happy learning
