Hey @vinjam_likitha

Please read the word document data using Word activities

Then you can please use Generate Data Table activity to which the above string will be passed as an input & choose column delimiter as comma.

This will output the string as data table.

Hope that helps.



check this example i made

WordToExcel.docx (12.0 KB)
test.xaml (6.7 KB)



I got the below output for the test.xaml (6.7 KB)xaml.


Laskshmi and sudheer ‘L’ and S are missing

@vinjam_likitha You can do this using below steps

  • Read the text file data to string
  • Use Generate data table activity to export the data to data table based on comma seperated values
