    Couple of choicese: - if you want to opt for using ms word in the background. Assuming that you dont, - you can use Active PDF COM component to do the conversion. and if you really prefer to take it head on - google for xpdf or kpdf.c those are open source pdf readers that you can:
    a) convert to C#
    b) export functions out of and marshal from C#;
    Personally I'd go latter route.

    iText.NET -
    Java version and a .NET version - I've used it in several projects, works without too much pain :)
    And free.
