I work for a distributor and I've looked around and can't find anything that will convert a PDF that I get from my customer (Purchase Order) into a XML or CSV file that I can use to import into our inhouse custom software. The customer is simply printing their PO to a PDF and emailing it. Can anything be done? It would be such a timesaver.
I worked with a Distributor with just that situation. They tried convincing the customer to send them a datafile but it was very hard to get them to do that. So, they ended up using EDI Link Connect. They just email the PO into the server and it emailed back a XML file that was compatible with their internal system . Its intended specifically for business use and not one-time stuff. They were up and running with a couple days. If you think thats what you need, here is a link: http://ecdynamics.com/pdf-conversion.php
