Process pdf invoices to filemaker fields

Post

I am processing alot of pdf invoices into filemaker fields. Would it be possible to create a script that searches for invoice numbers, due-dates, KID numbers and other information and put this into filemaker fields? Parse the pdf text based on predefined searches, and then cleanup the fields. I suppose it can be difficult to find patterns of text and then pickup the correct corresponding text. It is different languages, different layouts.

Have anyone done this and could give me a possible roadmap to help me save time getting data out of the pdf files into my accounting system in filemaker? Now we click/drag the text from pdf documents manually into fields.

I am looking forward to hear from you.

Nicolay
