Hi,

I think we don’t have much options for this requirement. There is one approach like

  1. Get the mail body from the mail items.

  2. Convert that text to a html file.

  3. Open that html table in browser.

  4. Using extract table or extract structure activity to extract the data into data table.

  5. Use write range to write data back to excel.

Sharing my thought with the above high level steps.

And also please refrer the below link it is having some different approach to achieve the requirement you mentioned.
