Read PDF Text→Substring→Split string(output is an array)→Generate Data Table(input: array(0), ColumnSeparators: " ", output: dt)→write range
It’s work for writting first row to excel, use for each, to write all row.

My I know which package you have installed/updated because I am also facing the same problem.
