Hi All,

We are already working in MS-WORD 2007 with C#4.0(WIN FORM Application) by using open XML representation of the MS-WORD 2007 for splitting,Aggregate the word document.Now, We extending our work to supporting PDF Files.So, i would like to know if there is any tool available for getting internal structure(XML BASED) of the PDF file likewise Open XML representation for MS-OFFICE 2007?

Please enlighten me on this...?

Not really XML based. PDF structure is very different, if you need to map it onto XML, you would need to 1) do it yourself, 2) apply some mapping rules of your choice and your way of defining such rules — there is no predefined one-to-one correspondence between PDF and XML.

For working with PDF, I would advise to use Open Source iText, more exactly, its .NET port called iTextSharp:[^],[^],[^].
