Read data from an open pdf file

Hi everybody, tell me how can I read data from a file? I use the “Select File” action, but I cannot read a specific line or value from it. What is the best way I can do this?

Hi @bas.developer

Go to Manage Packages search UiPath.PDF.Activities install and save.


and use Read Pdf Text activity and pass the path of pdf file and create output variable.

No, you do not understand, I do not specify a specific path to the file, the user selects the file and then a specific line must be read from this open file. I just can’t understand where and in what form this file is stored


Use Anchor Base activity and on left hand side use Find Element activity and indicate the field you want to read and on right hand side use Get Text activity to read the required field value.

@bas.developer The Output of Select File Activity is a String as Full Path of the File that you have Selected, You can Pass this Output to Read PDF text Activity, and then you can read the PDF

You can somehow show it visually?
I would be very grateful to you for your help
