I would like to extract data from an internal application. The data is presented on screen as an image, so I want to use OCR to get the data.
I can achieve the result if I have a static image (i.e. save the image and OCR that). However, the automation I am generating will not always have the same data on screen (the account names are all different) - but it will always be in the same place.
So my requirements are:
- set up a loop to check many accounts (I have a CSV file with all the account numbers - the loop works correctly)
- automate the keystrokes to open a screen based on an account number (working)
- the system displays the results for that account (Working)
- Use OCR to read the account name displayed on screen (This is where I have an issue)
There are loads of extra steps needed, but I am looking for information on how to perform step 4 given that the actual image is different each time.
Thanks in advance.
