Read PDF and pull data


I have a requirement to upload PDF from local drive and search for particular line and move that particular line data into a internal table in a readable format.


I have pdf file ZTEST.pdf within the file on 10th line, we have external customer number in a specific length. I need to read this external customer number and update into a custom table.

Can anybody give a possible solution.

Thanks for your help
