Data extraction from PDF file

Hi there, I'm an absolute beginner to OutSystems and I have been given an assignment in OutSystems. 

The basic context is to upload a pdf (example; an invoice) to extract data from it, thus the extracted data could be shown to role assigned users for verification and approval. The extracted data mostly would be the table of contents in an invoice to show to verification and approval role assigned users.

I'm not sure where to start and how to do it, I have barely learnt OutSystems through Reactive Web development guided path and could really use some guidance and tips to move forward with this assignment.

Hi,

To upload a PDF use the Upload widget and store it in a binary entity attribute.

To extract text from the PDF you can try one of the following Forge components

Kind regards,

Daniel
