Unexpected character get text activity


I have a problem with the get text activity from a pdf. When run the process, the activity reads the text inside a small table, but the output contains a character(@) before double quotes.

I hope you can help

Hi @Sebas1 ,

Is that only when you view it in immediate, or does it show up even when you write it to notepad?

Kind Regards,

Hi @Sebas1

Can you share the screenshot and try to

Instead of Get Text use screen scrapping


I have discovered that the character is a way to represent empty lines or empty fields.

Thanks to all

Instead you can use READ PDF or READ PDF with ocr and get the string as output
Then you can do the string manipulation instead of using get text in pdf

Cheers @Sebas1
