Hi there,

Hi Ishan,

Thanks for contacting support.

Please check following code snippet which I have used to test the scenario with one of my sample PDFs and was unable to notice the issue. For your reference, I have attached an input document as well.

Document pdfDocument = new Document(“document_with_table_out.pdf”);

TableAbsorber absorber = new TableAbsorber();


// Extract Data From First Row, First Cell

TextFragment fragment = absorber.TableList[0].RowList[0].CellList[0].TextFragments[1];


For more information you may visit "Manipulate Table in Existing PDF" article which contains updated information regarding table extraction and in case if you still face any issue, please share your input document so that we can test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.
