I'm looking for a component, SDK, code , class , application or anything that could help me to extract plain text from a PDF document and save the content into a database in VB.NET or C# code.

ABCpdf - it's a PDF component for .NET / ASP.NET, documented for both C# and VB.NET.
The Doc.GetText() method returns text from the current page as either plain text or SVG. Plain text is returned in layout order, which may not be the same as reading order. SVG on the otherhand returns the text along with additional information,
such as where the text is positioned on a page.
The Doc.GetText method is documented here...

Try using ZetPDF. It works well for me.
