Table Snip multiple pages

With the ‘Table Snip’, you can easily extract tabular data from PDFs into Excel. Multi-page table extraction allows you to analyze large PDF reports. Save time!

Let's start

  1. Draw a rectangle around the data (excluding headers) in the PDF, so your first Table snip is created.
  2. Then click the "...", you can choose on which pages it should create additional table snips for the same positions.

If you don't want to extract the header for every new page, don't select the header on the first table. 



  1. Does the repeat Table Snip option work when the size of the tables on the different pages is not consistent?
    Yes, it works as long as the first table snip you create is big enough in order to capture the tables that may be bigger in the rest of the pages of the document.
  2. If there is no header on a table I want to snip, will Table Snip still work?
    You don't need a header to be able to snip the information that is in tabular format. DataSnipper will still recognize the table and you should be able to snip it using the Table Snip.

    Additionally, in Version 4.1, the “Table Snip Suggestions” feature doesn’t take out table headings by default, therefore you should always snip headers of tables using a manual table snip once. 
  3. When repeating the Table Snip, the edited rows on your first table snip will not be applied on the table snips on the other pages as it will default to re-identifying the rows again. Is there a way to consistently apply the configured set-up on the repeated table snips?
    This is not possible at the moment with versions V4.0 and V4.1. Even when you extract a suggested table group (which is a bit more advanced in its algorithm), editing columns is synchronized across the entire group, but that's not the case for rows.
