Good question?! The answer to this is . build an Intelligent app! Now, how do you do this? Well, if you know how to program in Visual Studio then you can use Microsoft Azure services that trains a model to read and understand your PDF forms so that the data is extracted and put into a table for you! Have a look at this website. There is a service called âForms Recogniserâ that solves your problem. I think you can, even, use that service, in PowerApps. That is, build a forms recogniser service application that reads your PDF files. What is Form Recognizer? - Azure Cognitive Services Though I just noticed something! Oops!
I think that what you see there is, in part, the way that my brain works. I try to understand how the things work (that makes sense), then I just do it, and it works. That's it. I am also a bit of a nerd. However, when it comes to things that are new and a little advanced, I get confused, and I start to ask lots of questions. Then I realize that the thing is going to work, and I feel a bit silly for being too surprised. That's basically how it is with me, as a human. But don't get the wrong idea. You are welcome! You can actually create your own models (form-recognizers) and run them in Azure with these methods. The important parts here are: First, a PDF file must be opened in Vision (Windows based) or Microsoft Word (Mac OS X) so that the data is extracted.
