How to automate the process of converting a pdf to excel online?

May 7, 2012 3:14 PM



Each morning I recieve a bunch of pdf files form my clinet and I need to convert all of them to MS - excel and then use them for further calculations.

This is a repititive, tedious and time consuming process.


So the idea is to automate the following steps-

1. Open the pdf file from the suggested/given location

2. Convert it to excel- online

3. Save it at a desired location

4. Repeat the process for all files.


Can some one please suggest how to write and execute the code to fulfill this algorithm?

    Hi, Vivek.

    Currently, ExportPDF can only handle 1 file at a time. Adobe Acrobat can do batch export to Excel, however.

    This idea has already been added to the ExportPDF Ideas list ("Export multiple..."). If you'd like to see this improvement to ExportPDF, please add your vote or comment here.
