Reusable template for extracting employee ID, name, approver name, date, and total hours from weekly timesheet (PDF files) and consolidating monthly report.
Extract employee ID and name from PDF files and store it in a variable.
Use the start process to open PDF files and extract table format data using Extract structure data activity.
Remove unwanted empty rows and keep only required data (in this example having project code and a total number of hours for the entire week).
Update the date into the respective weekly data table from the weekly folder structure.
Merge all the data tables and get unique employee ID and again join all the weekly data table (1,2,3,4,5) with unique ID table using join data table activity.
Now, all the data will be updated into the master data table and calculate all the weekly hours (if there is no weekly hours place ‘-’ in the blank cell).
Merge the duplicate item into one cell and format the report structure using simple VBA code (if required – optional).
