@Vidhi_Patel your pdf have same template so I will recommend use pdf packages and get data through OCR.

Thank you gokul , but i don’t understand Regular expression much. let me know if any other way exists.

Which OCR Engine should i use? Uipath screen OCR?

You can easily achieve via regex expression. it is a simple way to achieve the output. Have you tested the XAML file? @Vidhi_Patel
