Extract text from pdf file

Hello all

I am trying to extract some text placed in a specific position from a pdf file. 

For example, a bill with some information and I want to extract the name and address.  I manage to do it with PDFhelper for a certain file but when I change to another file with the same structure but other information I receive an error because the positions are not the same.

is there any way to do this without being position based?



There are no out of box solutions available in OS for text extraction from PDF.  There are commercial .net components  available using which you could build and extension and use it in OS.  There is a nuget package available @ https://www.nuget.org/packages/FreeSpire.PDF/ . You could try build an extension using this free version if your pdf's are less than 10 pages (https://www.e-iceblue.com/Introduce/free-pdf-component.html)
