I need someone library or package for PDF to Excel conversion.

This is tricky because in PDF there is no concept of table. There is at least one good package that can convert PDF to text blocks. Would that work for you?
Here the package Manuel was talking about. It extracts text from pdf files and try to cope with data presented in tabular format, but this is a really tricky task that may require additional post-processing before conversion.
Could you tell me more about your exact needs ? for example : - what kind of data contain your pdf files ? - which data do you want to import in excel ? do you want to preserve the graphical presentation of the original pdf file, or just import data that could fit in a CSV file ?

I already use PDF to TXT converter. But this is only a half job. I have been writing a package with the TXT parser solution and XLS creation from it. Thanks for indication.

Sounds great Marcos. Maybe you can submit your work as a class based on Christian solution because I am sure it would be useful to others, not to mention it would be innovative and you can earn recognition from the Innovation Award.
