How to Insert PDF Files in your Microsoft Word Document

I am doing a report using Microsoft word and one of the task that I have to do is to insert a PDF file in the Main Microsoft Word Document. I tried lots of technique to do this and finally I get it. This might not be the only solution but this is the solution that I have tried and I want to share it to you.

Just follow the following steps.

Step 1 : Press ( Insert >>> Object )

By pressing the Insert >> Object as shown above, The computer will lead you to a windows asking to ” Create new ” or ” Create from File “. Since my aim is to insert PDF File in Microsoft Word I have to choose ” Create from File “

Step 2 : Browse the PDF Files that you need to insert into Microsoft Word

It could be a PDF file, Microsoft Word Files or any other type of computer documents

 

Step 3 : Press Browse

You have to locate the location of the document with in your computer. If you want to update your document whenever you change the sub documents. You have to press the ” Link to File “ box. And if you like to display the File Icon just press the ” Display Icon Box “

Step 4 : Test your link

Upon completing Step 3 and locating your file. An icon in your Microsoft Word Document should show the below icon. Save your file and go to other computer and then try to open the document . Upon Double Clicking the Document the icon it should open.

 

There it is, A simple but yet hard for me to figure out. Since Google Search result did not gave me this tip.

I just hope this could help to others looking for the same solution.

    Wanted to thank you as well for this tip. MSWord always wants to consider itself as brighter than you are; persuading it to do what you want rather than what it wants can be nearly impossible. Thank heaven for the internet. “Help” is nearly useless at times like these!

    That’s great if you want to go to or print the PDF as a separate doc, but I need to insert it int the document and have it print with the correct page number and Heading of my word document. I can insert it, but the quality is terrible. I also need to insert form made in Word keeping the form’s headers and footers, but also the bid document’s headers and footer. Any way you can help me?
