1 solution

Short answer: You can't.

Longer answer: If you have a commercial version of Acrobat installed you may be able to instantiate a COM object to remotely contol a PDF document and get something out of it. You may also be able to design a COM object that wraps part of the iTextSharp library to parse a PDF file. This is very advanced stuff for someone who has been working with .NET professionally for about 5 years or more.

Tell us more about what you're trying to accomplish.

You can copy all the data from the PDF document, irrespective of its type, with the formatting intact into Excel, using PDF2XL software. I have purchased this software, and a regular user.
