I'm trying to create a loop that effectively goes through a folder containing multiple pdf documents. This script is essentially meant to open and extract specific data from each pdf and export it to a single .txt file. The data export script has already been written, but I am having issues with setting up my loop to work through the folder.
This is the general layout of the loop I am currently working with:
while (***FOLDER HAS NEXT FILE***)
var thisFile = ***SAVE FILE NAME AS STRING VARIABLE***
(insert data extraction and export script)
If this initial approach is ineffective, or if there is a more efficient alternative, please share! Thank you!
Batch processing/actions step over each file in turn. You do not code this, you just code for each file.
External apps can do this and use IAC.
What external app would you recommend for this task?
You'd write it.
