Hi,

I am using the below code to convert the word document content to the PDF file...

But i am not able to move the contents like table from word to PDF. Any idea how this can be done.

Any API's which is available for this ? Please throw some light on this..

Renu,
Do you have to write code to convert the file? If you search for "print in pdf", there are a lot of products. Maybe one has a command line or API?

You'll need to use the POI API to get at the tables, pictures, styles etc., and then call appropriate iText classes/methods while creating the PDF. It's quite a complex project.

I'd advise to use the JODConverter library for this (which uses OpenOffice in server mode, so you need OO installed).

In my opinion, you can download a converter here:

I don't see any suggestion that it has a Java API - does it?
