I just got a new project on creating a new personnel database. One challenge is that I need to automatically populate the fields into Filemaker 12 from the CV in word or pdf format. The CVs are standardized with all the field names in bold. Is it possible to do this systematically? If yes, how to do it? Is there any software available for this purpose? Has anyone has done similar projects? Any hint is appreciated.
