Joe, i am expecting a good suggestion from SQA forum members with real time experience. If somebody already using any tool without issues i can choose it blindfolded rather than Google search, trial and error...
In our past project, we have used pdf_to_text-tool.exe and used below command line parameter to get text file
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.run("CMD /c "&strpdftotextPath&" --file "&chr(34)& ExpectedFilePath &chr(34)& " > " &chr(34)&ExpectedTextFilePath&chr(34))
