OutOfMemory Exception counting PDF tables


I have a small program that is trying to count the number of tables in a pdf. However, I keep getting an OutOfMemory exception. I have attached the pdf. I am using Aspose.PDF any help would be appreciated

.brokentable.pdf (990.2 KB)



Thank you for contacting support.

Would you please share SSCCE code as well so that we may try to reproduce and investigate it in our environment.



below is a small program will show the problem with the previously attached pdf. You will need to supply your own Aspose.Total.lic file. When I was messing with the license file, I commented out the licensing code and the program ran through, displaying there were 8 tables. I’m not sure what this means. If you need anything else, let me know.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.IO;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Aspose.Pdf;
using Aspose.Pdf.Text;

namespace AsposeTableTest
    public class Program
        public static void Main(string[] args)
            License license = new License();

            string path = Path.GetDirectoryName(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location);
            string fileName = "brokentable.pdf";

            Console.WriteLine("File: {0} - {1}", fileName, DateTime.Now);
            using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(fileName))
                Document doc = new Document(sr.BaseStream);

                TableAbsorber absorber = new TableAbsorber();

                foreach (var page in doc.Pages)

                Console.WriteLine("Tables: {0}", absorber.TableList.Count);

            Console.WriteLine("{0} Finished", DateTime.Now);



We have been able to reproduce the issue and have been able to reproduce it in our environment. A ticket with ID has been logged in our issue management system for further investigation and resolution.

About unlicensed testing, you were facing Evaluation Version Limitations so 8 tables were somehow counted from first four pages of your PDF document. We will let you know as soon as any further update will be available in this regard.
