Every ByteScout tool contains example VBScript source codes that you can find here or in the folder with installed ByteScout product. ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK is the Software Development Kit (SDK) that is designed to help developers with data extraction from unstructured documents like pdf, tiff, scans, images, scanned and electronic forms. The library is powered by OCR, computer vision and AI to provide unique functionality like table detection, automatic table structure extraction, data restoration, data restructuring and reconstruction. Supports PDF, TIFF, PNG, JPG images as input and can output CSV, XML, JSON formatted data. Includes full set of utilities like pdf splitter, pdf merger, searchable pdf maker. It can find PDF table and extract as XML in VBScript.
The SDK samples like this one below explain how to quickly make your application do find PDF table and extract as XML in VBScript with the help of ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK. Just copy and paste the code into your VBScript application’s code and follow the instruction. Test VBScript sample code examples whether they respond your needs and requirements for the project.
Free trial version of ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK is available on our website. Documentation and source code samples are included.
