Report Design Basics
Monarch Data Prep Studio is not limited to working with databases and tables. You can also open a PDF/PRN report and select the fields that you want to include in a table. Once the table has been completely defined, it is included in the Preview Window from where you can load and combine it with other available tables.
Open your PDF/PRN document.
Select Open File from the Start Page
Locate you file on your desktop or network and then drag it to the Start Page

You can load multiple reports into this node by clicking on the drop-down button located to the right of the parent table and then selecting Report Options > Add Report.
Note, however, that added reports must have the same format and be of the same file type to enable correct data capture.
