Eg. Invoice Number, 12345
Invoice Date, 04/04/2019

Use Case:SAP and ServiceNow
Lookup values from SAP MIR4 in an attached vendor invoice document
The fields (Invoice Number, Date, Amount etc) can be anywhere in the PDF depending on the vendor. We read values from SAP using a get text and built a data table which was passed to the library and got the email output. We also used this component to Lookup values in Order Forms to compare against Quote documents (HTML).
