Best tool for inputing specific information from a pdf?


I am looking to read information off a form W-8 PDF.

My first thought was to use


However, I want a narrow input range than a single page. Selecting only a single text box from page 1 and another text box from page 7. I then want to output this information to an excel spreadsheet. So it seems that ReadPDFText activity is too broad for my needs. What is a good alternative?

Or is my only option to output the messy data and clean it in a different program?

I am very new to this community and UiPath in general. Any advice is welcomed. Thank you in advance.
