Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1030) Page extraction for Word,Excel Documents
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2012 16:16:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1030?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13503239#comment-13503239

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-1030:

Excel isn't a page based format, so there's no page information to return

Generally, word doesn't store page information in the file, it normally computes it on the
fly based on the page / printer / font settings. There may be some paging information in the
file, at the very least forced page breaks. We could like at adding those in, but you won't
get the same thing as in a PDF as the file format isn't set out the same way. (PDF is a page
based format, Word is more similar to something like html in terms of text with styling)

> I would like to extract pages from word doc's and excel sheets. 
> Reason: I'm using solr to search files and give page hit results. For this I used pdfbox
for page extraction. Now I would like to upload other doctypes but I can't seem to find paging
support for it.
