Hi Dylan,

For your request there are few options to monitor and display this in PRTG. I would recommend to create a EXE/Script Advanced sensor to read the document and display the values in PRTG. For this custom sensor I would recommend to take a look at here.

If you create a PowerShell based script I would recommend to take a look at our guide.

Kind regards
