A system for extracting data from irregular text tables is designed and implemented. This system, CuteX, is an association between every items in a column. It is implemented in Java and is approximately about 3000 lines of code. The system automatically partitions the set of input text tables into directories containing correct and incorrect extractions. This paper focuses on the demonstration of illustrating the robustness and iterative process of improving the extraction yield of the clustering algorithm.
