    Default Re: Reading tabular format data from PDF file

    I have merged your threads. Please don't ask the same thing multiple times or that confuses everybody.

    I've never done this myself: if someone sent me data in a pdf document I would point out their error and have them send it to me again in a more sensible format.

    Have you googled to see what pdf libraries are available? That would be easier than writing your own code.
