Convert PDF to EXCEL or CSV using SSIS or C# ?

  • Hi there,

    Is it possible to convert a PDF file containing a table to an EXCEL or CSV file using C# code?

    I have NitroPDF that lets you convert it easily using their convert feature. I am trying to do this using C# code myself.

    PDF file is also attached.

    Check below screenshots:

  • As far as I know, C# cannot do this conversion natively.

    NitroPDF does not appear to have an API, so its functions cannot be called from other applications. You'll have to look for a different solution (perhaps another related app which does have an API).

    If you haven't even tried to resolve your issue, please don't expect the hard-working volunteers here to waste their time providing links to answers which you could easily have found yourself.

    I found this: https://pdfrest.com/apitools/pdf-to-excel/

    Is this a good option to use to download a pdf file daily and convert it to excel using this api from our application and then continue using the excel file?

  • Looks promising, but I haven't used it.

    You need to start doing some R&D.

    Once you figure out how to code the REST calls you need, whacking that code into SSIS isn't too difficult.
