Request for help on Autoit script on PDF-XChange Editor

Recommended Posts

I'm not familiar with that program. However if you can get access to the text then my solution has been to write a regular expression to extract the data to a 1-D array. Of course, this requires that the data is in a standard format, which is not always the case. Once you have the 1-D array, you can convert it into a 2-D array which is nearly a table :)

All my code provided is Public Domain... but it may not work. ;) Use it, change it, break it, whatever you want.

[AB_012]{Temp} This is a sample text for standard form.


Comes here with info


This is first explanation for Data1


This is the explanation for Info1

(CD_345, CD_678)


Above is the explanation of the most standard form of data repeated with different numbers in pdf.

As you can see, there are 2 special characters ⌈ and ⌋, not sure how to delimit them.

Also, when I extract to excel, sometimes the critical data comes without spaces as "Thisisasampletextforstandardform."

PS: I was trying to play with excel if not possible with PDF.

Thank you for your first input seadoggie01

For me this somehow implies, that you can specify the file format in which the data are available by yourself. Could you please describe in more detail, where e.g. the data you want to extract originates from.
