To read the content from doc/docx file or text file and paste in a certain place/block

Hi all,

I want to read the content from doc file or text file and paste in a certain place/block.

To read the doc/docx/ text file- I’m using the read activity for doc and text in a if condition, I check the extension of the file and based on that I use the READ activity for text and doc/docx respectively.

To paste it in a certain block- I copy the contents to a clipboard by used “set to clipboard” activity, and by using send hotkey, I paste it in the block.

Is there any alternate way we can achieve this?

Thanks in advance!!
