    whole pdf and write it into a text file.

    Hope that there is already someone with the codes avaliable.

    Thanks a lot

      Text extraction is just "rendering to a virtual device". While not yet part of the public release, there is code doing this in the "snippets" download.

      The upcoming release will contain the improved version of this utility.

        ...another tip:

        maybe you should have another look at PDFBox - famous for its text extraction.

      Thanks alot...

      Have tried pdfbox concurrently, a very good program and writing to textfile is very effective.
      The only setback is the original formatting of spaces in a table from a pdf is not kept when converted.

      Thanks a lot for the help and advice. Welcome any more valuable tips or sharings =)

      Cheers
