Hi @Madhukumar_M

Have you tried adding some delay before the get text to give some time for the PDF application to open and get ready?

And, what’s the error that you are getting?

It is probably because of wrong selector.
Better way is to try to Read pdf with Read PDF File activity, then use String manipulation and Regex to extract the value.

Can you post the PDF and the data that you want to get? Maybe i can help you


I would suggest to use a Read pdf file as said by @srdjan.suc or you may use computer vision activites like this:
1.Open the pdf file
2.go to the page you are looking to find the text
3.get cv text and get the text.

let us know if this helps,
