There is a plug in that will allow you to copy the text from the PDF into a field, but "different layouts, different languages" will make any attempt at parsing the text in that field difficult to impossible.
Ok thank you for your reply, I will try to find a way to at least get some info out from a textfield based on the content from the pdf, maybe based on the parser like the custom function from Hal Gumbert https://www.briandunning.com/cf/559. But yes, this is difficult. I will also look on the pluginScribe from 360works. I think it will be some kind of 50% manually/auto solution. We do have some companies like Scandic Hotels that send us invoices in a very clean format, I think it is no problem to get 100% automatic on those invoices. If we can get automatic parsing on invoices with big volume, we could save alot of time. I hope we some day get invoices in another format like xml. Do you have some experience with getting data from other formats? I still find xml difficult...
