It would be greatful if anyone could help me. Actually, I have a pdf file which contains details of 10 customers. Based on the Account Number I need to split the PDF and write the extracted details of that particular customer into another pdf.

I got the code for the splitting a pdf page wise. But, this doesn't satisfy my requiremnt as each customer details are not confined to single page. Thanks in advance.

The things that are possible to do with a PDF after it has been created are quite limited. Accessing specific pieces of its content in particular is just about impossible. The best you may be able to do is to extract all text of the PDF, and break it down into its constituent pieces using string processing. Libraries like JPedal and PDFBox allow you to extract text from a PDF.
