Hi @Rajkumar Jagdale​ 


If you use PDF: Extract Text and if the required text is visible in the text file, we can then read the text file and use regex to get what we want.

Please provide some sample data so that we can test that approach, or you can do it from your end.


Kind Regards,

PDF: Extract gives only labels not its values.
