Importing a PDF table as a list of records

I’m trying to use the PDF Form feature, with a rule attached to it. The table in the imported PDF is a list of Issues (rows) with their own properties (columns). I noticed you can choose a 1:M relationship for the import field’s path, but it seems to create just one Issue record and overwrite it with each row it reads (as if it’s a 1:1 relationship). Is the PDF Form import one-dimensional? Just double checking before I switch to trying an excel sheet.


Yes, effectively you can only create a “flat” structure from a PDF import. It will not know what to do with repeating field mappings (i.e. rows of a table) and will treat them as the same one record, and so the last fields it imports will “win” and be the ones saved.

That clears it up, cheers!
