Y, Tika doesn't currently maintain table format because tables aren't stored as such in PDFs.
 You have to apply some serious math to figure out 1) where a table is and 2) where the columns
are, etc. 

Have you tried [TabulaPDF|http://tabula.technology/]?  See also the [ContentMine|http://contentmine.org/]'s
recent work with tables ([twitter|https://twitter.com/petermurrayrust/status/823450517212905472]).

To attach a file, did you go to More->Attach Files?
