Please Ease Up and Show Some Effort. We are Not A Code Mill.

What have you tried so far? Have you already found Apache POI?

If you have code that can create PDFs from the DOC/XLS files, then you must have a mechanism that knows how to render those files (in other words, how to layout the elements of it). Can't you adapt that code to create images instead of PDFs?

Hi,

I have used POI for creating my own pdf file. This is not from any word/excel document. Even i don't have any code that can convert any word file to pdf file.

Does anyone has suggestions regarding this??
