I have around 300 pdf files with 19 pages each. I want to extract from each of them a fraction of a table on page 4 in order to build a research data set. Is i possible to do so using matlab? if so,which toolboxes and functions I need. I have matlab 2013a.
JFTR, since R2017b, extractFileText('filename.pdf','Pages',4) from Text Analytics Toolbox gives you the text on ("physical") page 4 of the PDF, from which you can then extract the parts you need with string operations (extractBetween, regexp, etc.).
