Hello @somas1218 try to use GetText activity and try to read required data.
once you get the data into a String then do string manipulations by using split functions…
when you get final output on a string after string manipulations then use write cell activity and post the data.

Hope my inputs are useful.

Try to Open your default pdf reader with Open Application Or Start process.
Use Ocr For Extracting data.Then Build data table and Write it to Excel .Hope this soves your Scenario.
