Importing data from PDFs

I'm attempting to import multiple pdf that are orders exported from our Customer's online portal.  
I get the data from Folder.  The problem is that the tables on some of the pdfs carry onto a second page, and the orders that carry on do not get imported.


The MultiPageTables option, when set to true, is supposed to detect tables that span multiple pages. It sounds like that option isn't working as expected for your particular files.


Do the files only contain a second page when the first table continues past the first page? Or is there sometimes other, unrelated data on the second page? You might be able to write some logic that iterates over the set of tables returned by Pdf.Tables and combine them.
