System Manager Table Data and Tabula

    There's a free tool called Tabula available at https://tabula.technology/

    It helps you extract tabular data from PDF files.  I've been using it to get financial transaction data out of my bank statements so that I don't have to retype them into my personal finance software.  Today I was getting frustrated with System Manager because I needed to put some adaptation data into documentation for my coworkers and the adaptations page didn't export XML (which is difficult to work with anyway).

    I remembered Tabula, so I printed to a PDF and a couple of minutes later, I had my table data in Confluence.

    Thought I'd share.
