How to recognize a table across pages

Hi,

 

I'm training an AI Builder module, I'd like to know how to extract a table data if that table across pages?

 

Scenario

I need to extract data from shipment notification and record the shipping status in our excel.

 

Questions

The table length will be different depends on how many items be shipped; therefore, some sample's table will in 1 page, some sample's table will across 2 or 3 pages.

How do I train the AI Builder to extract the data?

 

Sample

Hi @amyhsieh11,

 

Thank you for the question!

AI Builder Form Processing doesn’t currently support extracting tables than span across multiple pages as a single table. To extract tables from different pages, you will need to be define them as separate tables in the 'Choose information to extract step'. For example, if you have a document with a table than spans over three pages, you will need to define them as three separate tables.

The good news is that in a few weeks from now we will be releasing an update to AI Builder Form Processing that will add support to extract tables than span across multiple pages as a single table. Stay tuned. 🙂
