Web Scraping_Alternative Methods


#1

Hello,

I am trying to extract multiple pdfs from several web pages and then convert to excel.

One such URL is this:

http://gwinnetttaxcommissioner.publicaccessnow.com/Portals/0/PDF/Excess%20funds%20all%20years%20-%20rev02232017.pdf

Now, I know UiPath I can navigate to this URL and put in hotkeys to download file and then use Adobe to convert to excel etc…

However, I am wondering if we can use python to do so? Python can be used for web scraping and since I have many sites that I need to do this exact same process it seems to be more streamlined.

Once it is downloaded, the next challenge is conversion to excel but i will leave that for another inquiry (unless anyone has any ideas?)

Any help on this would be much appreciated.
