This week we met with a department on campus in need of the ability to manipulate and store data from PDF documents.Â The scenario was that all many forms were downloaded from a secure website, as one large file. These documents needed to be split, read, and sorted based on criteria in the document itself. This was my challenge beginning Thursday afternoon.
Future plans for this script is to connect to Banner, call a PL/SQL procedure and take the data returned, along with the info in the PDF, and move it in into an import table in Recruitment Plus. Once this is complete, we will effectively save this depart a couple of thousand dollars a month, having reduced their overhead.
