Read tables in a pdf document

I have pdf documents with tables embedded. I use a “convert pdf to excel” tool to extract these tables, but I wonder if there are tools to do this directly within 4D. An idea?

is “convert pdf to excel” a 4D External?

No, it’s an app - I can’t remember the name yet. But since that I’ve tried Rob’s https://www.pluggers.nl/product/pdfx-plugin/PDFX Plugin>, it’s worth it!
