Scrape Table Data From multiple pdf page and save into Excel File


I am trying to extract data from a table (only for Not Imported Keywords as we have multiple table with different types of data table but i need to scrape only Not Imported tables) spanning multiple pages of a pdf file. I can’t use read pdf because it is misalign the columns and values and sequence is also changing according to the different pdf.
Tried Data/Screen Scrapping which is some how working if table is on single page but i need to extract all table data either it is on one single page or multiple pages and finally need to convert scrapped table to the excel file. i am a new user unable to upload sample pdf files.
Any pointers?

Thanks in advance :slightly_smiling_face:


Welcome to forums,

you can work with document understanding

OR use any OCR tools like Forms Recognizer

These are ML based tool, where you can train your template
