PDF to XLSX using cURL Commands

Converting PDF files to Excel workbooks becomes seamless with Aspose.PDF Cloud, a powerful cloud-based solution that offers a range of benefits for data extraction and manipulation. By utilizing cURL commands, you can effortlessly initiate the PDF to Excel conversions. The first step in this approach is to generate a JWT access token using the following command:

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/connect/token" \
 -X POST \
 -d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=163c02a1-fcaa-4f79-be54-33012487e783&client_secret=c71cfe618cc6c0944f8f96bdef9813ac" \
 -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
 -H "Accept: application/json"

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/pdf/{sourceFile}/convert/xlsx?insertBlankColumnAtFirst=false&minimizeTheNumberOfWorksheets=false&uniformWorksheets=true" \
-X GET \
-H "accept: multipart/form-data" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-o "Conversion.xlsx"

Please try using the following command if you need to save the resultant Excel workbook to be directly stored in cloud storage.

curl-v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/pdf/{sourceFile}/convert/xlsx?outPath={myResultantFile}&insertBlankColumnAtFirst=false&minimizeTheNumberOfWorksheets=false&uniformWorksheets=true" \
-X PUT \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-d {}

Replace sourceFile with the name of input PDF (available in cloud storage), myResultantFile with the name of converted Excel workbook and, accessToken with JWT access token generated above.
