Convert PDF to MS Word DOCX in Python Without Acrobat Throws Error

When I try to convert a document from PDF to docx, I get the error message “‘property’ object has no attribute ‘swagger_types’” when I send the request to the API to convert the document. I haven’t done anything unusual with the requests. Can anyone advise me as to what’s going wrong and how to fix it?

@RoryJudith

I tested to convert PDF to MS Word DOCX with GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud API with a sample PDF document and was unable to notice the issue. Please share your sample input document along with the code. We will look into these and will guide you accordingly.

Convert PDF to Word with cURL

curl -X POST "https://api.groupdocs.cloud/v2.0/conversion" 
-H "accept: application/json" 
-H "authorization: Bearer [Access_Token]" 
-H "Content-Type: application/json" 
-H "x-aspose-client: Containerize.Swagger"
 -d "{ \"FilePath\": \"3amazon.pdf\", \"Format\": \"docx\", \"OutputPath\": \"3amazon_output.docx\"}"

The code is

import groupdocs_conversion_cloud as gcc

gcc_id = “xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxx-xxxxxxx”
gcc_sec = “xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx”

convertAPI = gcc.ConvertApi.from_keys(gcc_id, gcc_sec)
fileAPI = gcc.FileApi.from_keys(gcc_id, gcc_sec)

inputName = “MIT - 205 - 2011-6086 - MPW - PMP - Appendix B - MPW RA v.4 (pp 66-78).pdf”
outputName = “EP1.docx”
remote_name = “MIT - 205 - 2011-6086 - MPW - PMP - Appendix B - MPW RA v.4 (pp 66-78).pdf”
outputFormat = “docx”

request_upload = gcc.UploadFileRequest(remote_name, inputName)
response_upload = fileAPI.upload_file(request_upload)

gcc_settings = gcc.ConvertSettings()
gcc_settings.FilePath = remote_name
gcc_settings.format = outputFormat
gcc_settings.OutputPath = outputName

loadOptions = gcc.PdfLoadOptions
loadOptions.hide_pdf_annotations = True
loadOptions.remove_embedded_files = False
loadOptions.flatten_all_fields = True
gcc_settings.load_options = loadOptions

convertOptions = gcc.DocxConvertOptions()
convertOptions.pages = range(66,79)
gcc_settings.convert_options = convertOptions

request = gcc.ConvertDocumentRequest(gcc_settings)
response = convertAPI.convert_document(request)

I have attached the document I’ve been testing it on:
MIT - 205 - 2011-6086 - MPW - PMP - Appendix B - MPW RA v.4 (pp 66-78).pdf (3.0 MB)

@tilal.ahmad I tried the code you gave me and I’m still getting the same error message

@RoryJudith

It is quite strange that conversion is working fine at my end. Please ensure that you are using the latest SDK of GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud SDK for Python.

It’s working now. Thank you.
