Hi Mahesh, 

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. 

By mistake we have updated the support for exporting pages of PDF documents as metafile in WPF platform. This is a part of PDF viewer in Windows Forms. Since WPF does not provide support for metafile (WMF or EMF) we could not exporting pages of the PDF document vector images in PDF Viewer WPF, but we can achieve this in our PDF Viewer Windows. Please let me know if you have any concern.

Oh., That was misleading. Ok, Actually I was having a Table in PDF page and wanted that Table put it in a Word file(as Table itself – not as image). In order to achieve that I was trying to extract as EMF and put that EMF in word.

So, do you have any option to extract a Table from PDF and put that in Word? (or) from a Cell grid to a Word file.
