    I cannot extract tables from PDF files.

    Bio Jeong

      Hi. Tableau guys,

       

      I'm struggling to extract tables from pdf files. I thought Tableau automatically recognizes table-like things in PDF files. I don't know how Tableau works for the extract of tables from PDFs. For your information, I attached a PDF file with which I'm stuck. After opening a file, for example, you can go to the page 35 and you'll see a table-like frame. With this file, I even failed to fetch it in Tableau, saying "An error occurred while communicating with PDF file. The page or range you specified doesn't exist or contain any tables." PDF file attached herein is written in Korean. Is it a language problem?

       

      I need your help.
