I am using an excel tools plugin for converting HTML to CSV. Now, there is a new requirement for converting PDF to CSV, and walking through the discussions and searches I haven't found any good match or solution. Can anyone help me with this? It would be highly appreciated.

Hello, does the PDF file have a specific format? like tables or plain text? could you share an example?
you could use the following plugin to extract the text from the PDF (getpdftext function)
afther that you can use the extracted text to create a CSV file manually using the Text Doc from Template smartserivce
there is a youtube channel where they explain the creating a csv process: "Native Bean Turorials" the video is "Appain: CDT to CSV | English | NBT"
Thanks, Martin for the information. I already used getpdftext function to extract data from the pdf file. Then, I break the data according to requirements and parsed it to CDT. However, I managed to accomplish the goal and it's working right.
I will definitely check the youtube link for additional information. Thanks
