Get Attachments in PDF File

Hi there,

I have a pdf file which has excel attachment. I need to read that excel file. Did you encountered this kind of situation? How can I read excel file attached to pdf file?

When we open pdf file attachment looks like that in right attachments pane:

I could not find activity to extract attachments from pdf file. So I wrote my own custom activity. Here is activity nuget package link:

As an input activity takes full path of pdf file with an attachment.
As an output it extracts all the attachments in the same directory with pdf file and gives list of string that contains paths of attachments. So we get full path of attachments and can use them for our aim.

PS: If pdf has password protection then remove the password with “Manage PDF Password” activity.

I hope it will meet your needs.
