Automatically parse Office Word document located in Sharepoint

Hi,

 

I am setting up one framework based on Flow + Sharepoint for following purposes.

  1. Fully automatically detect Word document modification in specific folder of one Sharepoint site document library.
  2. Fully automatically parse the content of the modified Word document to identify self-defined pattern and output the identified information.

 

Point 1 is simple and implemented.

For point 2, the solution is still open in my mind but some ideas are coming as below.

  • No idea on whether there are some Sharepoint Apps capable to parse Word document content.
  • python-docx should be able to parse one Word document for my purpose. However, it is difficult to integrate with enterprise Sharepoint for full automatic purpose.
    • In case locally running one set of python programs based on python-docx module and automatically fetching the Word document from Sharepoint site, the obstacle is the authentication to the cloud.
    • Quite open to directly embed one piece of python code to one Flow connector for Word document content parsing.
  • When attempting to send one file to one local location, I failed with status "BadGateway".

 

Welcome any idea for my point 2. Thanks a lot!
