Convert PDF to excel

Hi
I am new talend and java. I am interested to find out if anyone created a job that can convert pdf to excel.
Are there any components I can use or is there any tjava sample code I could use.
Thanks

Hi,
Here is a related forum about:How to convert excel to PDF.

So far, there is no specific component or connector for PDF file in Talend.
Best regards

Re: Convert PDF to excel

Hi,
You might help yourself in the following way: look on the Talend Exchange for the tPDFToText community component, if your pdf is extractable of course, and after that from text you can create Excel files (with Talend's basic Excel files writing components or with J.Lolling's excellent Excel components for more advanced scenarios - also found on the Exchange).
Another way might be calling form your Talend job some third party transformation software (if there are any) and further process the result in your job.
Hope it helped.
