  • This forum is about what the C# IDE can do for you, not what you can do using the C# IDE. You don't discuss how to write a novel in pen or ink forum, do you?

    As for extracting tables, your word location does not look like a table definition. Adobe seems to know the pdf format better. Post in the Adobe PDF SDK forum to find out if there is a table definition in the PDF format. If the PDF file you need to deal with is indeed just an image in the PDF container, then you may need help in OCR as well. 

    For creating excel files in your code, find an Excel programming newsgroup.

  • This is a wrong forum. You need PDF help. Go to the forums where people give PDF help.
    When you are asking destinations on a wrong bus, the driver will probably tell you to get out and take another bus, instead of get off the route and provide taxi service for you.
