I have a number of pdf files (these are "scanned") in a folder (
"C:/Users/Documents/files_i_want" ). All the pdf files have different names. I am trying to import them all into R at the same time, by using the following command:
library(pdftools) library(tesseract) #Get the path of filenames filenames <- list.files("C:/Users/Documents/files_i_want", full.names = TRUE) #Read them in a list list_data <- lapply(filenames, pdftools::pdf_convert) #Name them as per your choice (df_1, df_2 etc) names(list_data) <- paste('df', seq_along(filenames), sep = '_') #Create objects in global environment. list2env(list_data, .GlobalEnv)
This returns the following error:
Error in names(list_data) <- paste("df", seq_along(filenames), sep = "_") : 'names' attribute  must be the same length as the vector 
Does anyone know why this error is being produced?
