PDF Template Creator

#1

when I use the pdf template creator (and I am following instructions from youtube video and guidance from manual) my extractions are not finding the words to extract. since I am sure I am following your video (did it with our onshore Infosys guy) I am at loss as to how to make it work or what component is failing.

Hi Brett,

Please refer AssistEdge-CE-AutomationStudioUserGuide Pg 62 for PDF automation. You have to first create a reference and then do a field selection

Let me know exactly where you are facing issue

Amit – these tried and failed before I went to YouTube video.

I tried absolute reference and draw a rectangle and search-string.

I get no errors in logs.

Hi,

Is it possible to share your pdf from which you are trying to extract value.

Hi Brett,

Kindly email to Amit_Anand15@edgeverve.com

Hi Brett,

Crc pdf is actually a PDF form. As of now search automation will not work on PDF forms.

TY for the info. I did not (still don’t) see the disclaimer for this in the documentation.

I will pass it along to the analyst

Hi,

As an alternate approach try using Image based automation

Same thing happened for me also. I tried with a different PDF file and it worked.

Also, how to use the same template for multiple similar PDF files? I need to know how the sequence will look like.

TIA

Hi,

You can take file path name as a variable and pass it via excel loop if you want to process multiple similar file. Template will remain constant

I want to fetch similar data from 4 PDF files. How to configure the same?

#13

Use Excel loop and define file path in selected excel. Inside the excel loop use your pdf extractor Give the file path argument from excel loop to the pdf extractor activity.

Amit

#14

Can you please tell how to provide the argument in pdf extractor? what should be the VB expression for this?

#15

Amit,

I am not able to provide the PDF location in the PDF extractor. Generally on clicking on it, it opens a file browser window. But, i need to provide the values mentioned in the excel file where i have provided the pdf file paths.

#17

You can replace the hardcoded path post your process creation with a argument which hold the file path

Thanks, its working now.

But, its working only for the 1st row from the excel. how to iterate thru all the rows? i have used the same in excel loop itself.
