It’s depends on type of data you are working with.

If you are familiar with String manipulation methods or Regular expression then use Read PDF Text Activity and will give you output as String and then use those methods to read requried data. Else you can open PDF file and scrape it.

Is it plain text or it contains Image ?

If contains any image then try with different OCR engines and it will read it properly.
