Thanks for ur reply. I've gone thro'the example. quite good. It partially satisfies my requirement.

Pdf file may have 4 columns of data.
for example, custID, Custname,Address,tel
12,xxxxxxxxxx,yyyyyy,5425456
13,rttttttttt,uuuuuu,8679879

how to load this into database? No need to produce back a pdf file. i'll proceed with datatable.

Thanks!

Ugghhhhh - i just love it when PDF files are used to transmit data. Not.

Will this PDF file need to be loaded in regularly? It would be best to approach the person who is sending it to you in PDF and get them to send it in another format. PDF is intended for viewing and printing, not for collecting and sending data to be broken apart again later.

Get them to send you XML instead..
