Extraction of Data From Word Docs

Hi, I just want to know is it a feasible to extract the data from the word docs, Is it possible ?
Or we use only PDF for data extraction.
Please guide.
If possible then how can we extract the data from the Word Docs.

You can download Word Activity pack from Manage Package tab and use Read text activity to read the Word file

Hi BalKishan

You can install Uipath.word.Activities Package. you can use word application scope and read text activity to read the file and get the output as string .

It is not mandatory that you have to go with PDF for data extraction .

You could try to extract whole value and then use some kind of String manipulation to extract and store the data into DataTable, and after write it down to an Excel file

So you have new Word activities that you’ve installed, and you need to use Word Application Scope> Read Text to read the text.

OR you can use File > Read Text activity without the Word Application Scope (these activities we already had)
