Can this PDF tio MS Word translation be automated from an Microsoft .Net external .program?

 

Using Adobe Acrobat DC on my deskop, I translate a PDF to 2 Microsoft Word formats.

 

Manaul steps

1. File > Export To > Microsoft Word > Word Dcoument, the SaveAs PDF screen, "Settings..."

2. The Save As DOCX Settings screen:

3) Two Layout Settings: Retain Flowing Text,  Retain Page Layout.

4) SaveAs to each format - 2 DOCX files.

 

Automation Requirement:

1) Develop a Net C# with the PDF Tools API library.  The program uploads PDF file to Cloud Document Services

2)  Send Retain Flowing Text option, get MS Word DOCX  returned to the calling C# program ( no manual intervention )

3) Send Retain Page Layout option, get MS Word DOCX returned to the calling C# program ( no manual intervention )

4) Repeat step 2, 3 for more files. i.e. each PDF translates into Retain Flow and Retain Page DOCX files.

 

Thanks for feedback.
