Convert PDF files into XML format
Adobe PDF is very popular format for high-quality printing and sharing
information over the Internet. But what if you need to get more from
PDF document? For example, extract certain parts of data using your own
program or script. The most suitable solutions for this purpose is to convert
the original PDF document into XML, wide popular format of structured data.
However there is bottleneck in this conversion process. Unlike XML,
PDF format doesn't have any tags to identify table structures. Each PDF
document is just a set of small text chunks having coordinates that
allow high-quality viewing and printing. For example, to extract
tables from PDF document you need to recognize each table via analyzing
cell offsets and/or graphic borders. But keep in mind that border styles
are very different and cell offsets can fluctuate.
Sounds complicated, doesn't it? Indeed, PDF to XML conversion algorithm
is not simple at all. That's why Intelligent Converters released easy-to-use
yet powerful utility for such a task. The product has intuitive interface
and supports command line to allow experienced users automate the conversion.

PDF to XML does not support optical character recognition (OCR), so it is
not possible to extract data
from scanned PDF documents. Still not sure the program fits your needs?
