Hi @arivu96

I have given dt.Rows.count but where you are getting the value of the datatable. ?

i need to get data from PDF File only not from DataTable !!

as per my knowledge i saw few examples and theory part i think pdf file can be convert as word only giving so many examples but convert to excel are rare ?

"so it is possible for convert PDF file to EXCEL file "

you have share the xaml file, if i run that shows an error message Like this

Error in For each loop also : see the below error screenshot too
