Hi @shalini23
You can use Read PDF Text


You just need to add the UiPath.PDF.Activities package.
Thanks and regards,

i have installed packages and used Read PDF text activity. I want to extract particular data from PDF. Apart from sub string method is there any other way to extract data from PDF?

Yes. You can.

Hi Shyamm,

In ACME URL ,I have to download the type - W12 - open status PDF file and have to extract the value also.

@shalini23

I had similar problem with downloaded PDF files while going through dev training. If you have a problem with scraping partial text in PDF, there’s a note in the introduction to lesson 10 on how could you solve this issue.

It didn’t worked for me tho. As I remember I used OCR scraping and string formatting to get the data. You could also use Computer Vision activities, which shyamm told you earlier about. This technology looks pretty neat, but I did not have use it in the development yet.
