There are excellent programming components specifically focused on enabling you to convert document file formats. The primary difference between one toolkit and another is the number of formats supported. Some components might only convert between core formats like PDF and DOC while others can convert between hundreds of different formats, including both raster images and documents.
Another distinct feature to look for in document conversion components is the ability to convert from one document to another and retain all of the text and formatting. Some toolkits only convert a document to an image, then must use some kind of post-processing such as OCR to save to another text-based format. The best toolkits first convert to an intermediate vector format, such as SVG, then use that as a base to convert to any other document or file format. The result is both faster and better accuracy.
