Dear Sri Subbu,

You have placed the same request in 4 different sub-forums. Being a Senior Member, you could have very well avoided this.

Now, coming to your request, as far as I know, a pdf file containing Tamil lettters can not be copied to word without loss of any format, due to usage of many fonts. But, through some pdf editors, the contents can be edited. Also, the pdf file can be converted to an image only.

Hope to get more clarifications from Experts.
