Anyway to get tables with converting from pdf to HTML?

Hi when I convert a pdf that has tables to HTML it uses divs to create the tables.

Is there anyway to get it to use standard html table markup? Eg


Hi Brian,

Thanks for contacting support.

Currently when exporting PDF file to HTML format, the page elements are rendered in
tags. However please share your source/input PDF file, so that we can test your scenario in our environment.

Sure see attached.

We have aspose.words as well, is converting from pdf to word then word to html an option to get tables?

Hi Brian,

Thanks for sharing the resource files.

have tested the scenario and I am able to reproduce the same problem that table is represented by DIV tags, instead of standard Table HTML markup. For the
sake of correction, I have logged it in our issue tracking system as
will investigate this issue in details and will keep you updated on the status
of a correction.
apologize for your inconvenience.

However as a workaround, you may consider converting PDF file to Excel worksheet and then transform Excel file to HTML format using Aspose.Cells. For more information, please visit

Just checking is there any update on if you plan to support HTML tables when converting from PDF to HTML?
