We have a requirement from a client. They receive purchase orders in PDF format. Data like PO number / date. Ship to party etc has to be pulled out from the PDF and saved as an Excel file. This data will be used to post sale orders in SAP (using BAPI)
Can we write an ABAP program to read the PDF file and extract the field data?
If the PDF files are not in a standard format, how difficult does the above task become?
The POs can be in different languages as well?
Has anyone done the above for any of their projects? If so, kindly help me out.
