how to extract cheque number from bank cheque in KNIME

Hi Experts,

I am new to the KNIME and wanted to understand can KNIME help me extracting cheque number from scanned image or pdf of bank cheque and store back to data base

Hi,

My advice is to have a PDF with text layer (OCR). With the PDF Parser node you can then extract text. Once you have text extracted you can isolate and extract the cheque number from the text with “RegEx split” node.
If you do not have an OCRed pdf or image you can use KNIME Image Processing - Tesseract (OCR) Extension. But I have no experience with it, so I can’t help you.

Have a nice day
