Extracting Attachments from PDF Documents

Hey all,

 

Question...not sure if this is possible, but I have a flow set up to download attachments from a shared mailbox and save them to folders in sharepoint based on the name of the attachment. These attachments are PDF documents. Within each PDF is also an attachment which is a CSV file. Is there anyway to read/parse the pdf contents to save this attachment as a CSV/excel file?

 

Thanks!

One option might be to use the Premium connector action from Cloudmersive Document Conversion called "Convert PDF Document to Text (txt) (Preview)". I have been able to use this to extract text from PDFs.

 

Documentation is at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/cloudmersiveconvert/#convert-pdf-document-to-text-(txt)

 

Cloudmersive has some really nice stuff available!

Docparser is really good for this sort of thing also.

Are there any possible solutions that do not involve premium connectors? Implementing a premium connector would require getting past lots of red tape.
