Are you able to copy/paste the text manually?

thank you,

I had parsed the PDF, and extracted a variable, then i need to save this value into an excel file (just 2 columns and 2 row )

for example:

pdf1 value1
pdf2 value2

Hi,

Here is the logic how to verify by bots.
1.Use Read PDF Text activity
2.If PDF return (pdfout)nothing then its scanned pdf
3. use if condition and say if (pdfout = nothing ) then
4. use "Read PDF with OCR (Scanned PDF)
5.Else Read PDF Text Activity for (Native PDF)

PDF output is in the string format.
1.So to extract the specific value you need to find the start index and end index of the value and pass these index and get the specific value by using substring
2.Finally use write cell activity and pass the variable .
