Just to expand on Derek's comments, PDF files are not really suitable for pulling information from. In the case of bank statements each bank has their own format which are often subtly different from the next bank thus there is no consistency to be able to build routines that could extract data.
Direct Connect is what Moneydance uses to automatically download transaction information from financial institutions, it is one of the few protocols that has been developed for the process, however it has largely only been made available by a subset of banks in the US.
Outside of the US some banks support links with accounting packages for their business customers but for personal customers most only support the downloading of transaction files, in formats like QIF, OFX/QFX or CSV. Moneydance supports the importing of these files.
Personally I doubt if Direct Connect will every expand outside of the U.S., it was developed by a U.S. consortium. The Open Banking initiative that is occurring in some countries looks interesting but do far it only seems to support aggregators if anything and not end user software.
There has been elementary worked commenced to try and embed a system in Moneydance to be able to download data from the Bank's Internet Banking sites but this project appears to have stalled at this point in time.
