Hi ,
You can use “Load Image” Activity and use it’s output variable to give input of the “Tesseract OCR” activity. After extracting the input you can use regex to extract the information if it has a pattern or you can use string manipulation to extract the specific text. Then build a Data Table and add the extracted values into the Data Table. This you can export into excel or csv according to your need

thanks for suggesting @anoopap i will try this process

Hi @Manisha541,

Check the below workflow for the template where the result of tesseract text extract is passed to the regex Matches activity.
Main.xaml (5.0 KB)

Hope this helps!

In the workflow i have upladed above, I have used regex to retrieve invoice no. (string manipulation). Please check.

yes,i had checked it

I will explain what i had did first,
I had loaded the image and then used microsoft ocr and the to extract the data what i need i used substring method and assigned it to one variable now i want to pass that data to excel .
any suggestions how can i place my data into excel with build data table

Hi @Manisha541

Try the attached workflow. Here I used OmniPage OCR instead of Tesseract.
Please note if the OCR extracted values has any changes then the work flow will fail.
