Hi @srinivasanma

1.Use start process activity pass the path where you save the pdf file.

You can use Read PDF Text activity, if it is a machine generated PDF.

And to get the Name you can use any of the following string operations based on your need.

  1. string.Substring
  2. Regex to extract strings
  3. String.Split options
