Thank you for your help

In fact, I have no issue to turn PDF to TXT within the program, the issue is the output TXT is not good enough for processing(due to the columns of PDf doc., after converting to TXT, the line sequences is out of order and information of one column mixed with others)

so wonder if we can interpret the content of PDF in another way

Regards,
Josephine
