Hello Don,

Just enquiring if anyone has solved this issue and would share/advise how they achieved it.

There's an OpenSource Package called "poppler-utils", from the Poppler PDF library project. It contains a pdftotext command with some options about how to preserve the given layout.

I don't know if this is available in PASE, though.

Together with a little Regex-Magic, extracting only data and leaving probable headers and footers aside, this should be fairly straightforward.

:wq! PoC
