Reading from screen also reads the text of the browser window which is not good.

Downloading the image and then reading it is giving a good output.

Use action for downloading and saving the image.

This saves the image to the folder given in the "Destination folder" parameter.




Hi, Thank you for response.


But then , if i have to extract only this much 



How i can acheive that?


Please help!!

Once you get the text perhaps you could use regular expressions and get the desired text.




I have printed both together in a single box but,

you could use \d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2} to get the date (enable the first occurrence only)

and (?<=Invoice #).* to get the invoice number


This is just a sample test based on general conditions.

Please test the regular expressions for your specific scenarios.
