Thanks again in advance for the help, all.
I've got a PDF that I need to import that is a form letter with user-selected check boxes. I had no problem building a standard layer that worked on my example file, but I thought it would be better to build it with floating traps since I'm not optimistic that each of the 2000 letters I need to read will be recognized identically by the report reader.
I've attached a snippet of the text I need to grab, shown in the report reader. For my standard layer, I used a multiline layer with the lead-in sentence as the trap. I then put an anchor in front of the "Yes" and "No" segments to grab whether or not the checkbox showed an "X". I have three different questions, each of which has identical Yes/No checkboxes, each needs to be captured - which means I can't use the "Yes" and "No" themselves for anything.
I thought I could possibly put a floating trap on the lead-in sentence in case it moves around a bit. Then, I'm not clear whether it's possible to build floating anchors to get the text in front of the words Yes and No, since that's not the line used for the actual trap. My only other thought was that I could bring in the whole row where the "Yes" and "No" appear and split it out after import.
Any other suggestions for how I might be able to handle this?
