I suggest you to try this way, write the data table to string using outputdatatable activity and again write that to datatable using generate datatable activity. Use space as a separator in generate datatable activity

Thanks for reply
The solution did not work.
can you suggest me other solution?

inputArray = input.Split(Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray)

For each ( set settings to string )

if with condition like this:
item.Contains("(") and item.Contains(".")

inside the if.
job = (item.Split("(“c)(1)).Split(”)“c)(0)
company = ((item.Split(”.“c)(1)).Split(”(“c)(1)).Split(”)"c)(0)
