Data extraction from PDF file

Hello Everyone,

Am still a newbie

I will like to know if I can use QV to extract data directly from spreadsheets or tables in a pdf file  and how?  or do I have to find a way to convert the pdf to excel sheet first.

All suggestions and advice are welcome as usual.

Thank you

Tes

You must use a external process that you call on Edit Script (execute cmd /c command).

Use java (itext) to do the Job.
