How to extract PDF data using re-framework

I need to create a workflow where I need to Process PDF Invoices and extract their data according to a Data Mapping Excel sheet. The data mapping sheet has various categories and according to the specific category data needs to be extracted from PDF file.
I am confused how to design the workflow using ReFramework, as I am not able to understand that what will be the Transaction Item for my Process.
Please help, thanks.
