Preamble: very very new to RPA and UiPath
Problem statement: extract about 10 or 11 fields of data from pdf invoices and write it in an excel/csv file as follows with the same column header names
AccountName, CustomerName Billing: email, phone number, address line1, City, State/Province Zip AR + WO, last date due and customer ID.
Have been exploring several options:
read pdf text : I get a blank flat file
read pdf OCR Text : much better and attached - sample.txt
followed this example https://docs.uipath.com/activities/docs/manual-validation-for-digitize-documents.
Arrived at attached presentValidationActivity.jpeg
- To achieve my goal, i guess this now needs to be replaced by https://docs.uipath.com/activities/docs/data-extraction-scope
If the number of invoices are in the 3000’s and only scanned images are available what is the best way to go?

I am able to indicate the values to be saved correctly and the save button indicates this info is saved. Where is it stored ? How can I access it?
