Add a PDF to a Microsoft Office File

Creating reports is part of everybodies employment. Ok, almost everybodies employment. Often times, we have documents that are in an Adobe PDF format that we would like to include in our report, whether it’s a reference file, or a created image file, the fact remains that it’s a *.pdf and you’re working with a word document.

So, there is a solution.

Word

Within your word document put your cursor at the location you want to insert the document by simply clicking there, then:

  1. Click the Insert tab.
  2. In the Text group, click Object.
  3. In the Object dialog box, click Adobe Acrobat Document, and then click OK.
  4. Browse to the *.pdf file you want to insert, and then click Open.

In this fashion, you can add each document you wish to add.
