Download/Extract attached files from PDF

Hi Team,

I've encrypted pdfs with excel files as an attachment. Need advise on how can these files be saved using code-behind.
I'm able to save using spying but it is little time consuming considering huge list of pdf.

Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi @Manish Kumar,

Here's a Stackoverflow article that discusses using C# to pull embedded files out of a PDF. In the article they make use of the iTextSharp library.

I've looked over the various assets on the DX that provide different degrees of PDF support, but none of them appear to do what you need. So I think you're correct that you'll have to roll your own functionality in a code stage.

Cheers,
