Using start process activity open the PDF file and using send hot key copy the content from pdf file.

No bro


Hi @varunk
Ensure that you have installed in your system and after that use Read PDF text with OCR activity to scrap and write the values in the excel…:slight_smile:
Because certain pdf files do not support while using Read PDF text with OCR activity
