How to Insert a Multiple Page PDF Into Word

By Filonia LeChat

While you may be familiar with Microsoft Word for typing documents, the word processing program is also useful when you want to combine documents from multiple sources. A Word document, for example, may hold text, facts and figures, but also call for information already published and present in a portable document format file, or PDF. Instead of sending two separate documents, combine the two into one single Word document for easy access and as a way to better keep track of your pages.

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word, click the “File” tab and click “Open.” Browse to the Word document to receive the PDF insertion and double-click the file, which opens in a new Word window.

Step 2

Scroll to the page prior to where the PDF will be inserted and press the “Ctrl” and “Enter” keys to give the document a page break.

Step 3

Click the “Insert” tab at the top of the screen. Click the “Object” menu in the “Text” section on the right side of the toolbar. Click the “Object” option. The “Object” window appears.

Step 4

Click the “Create from File” tab and click the “Browse” button. Navigate to where the PDF is located; look for an “Adobe Acrobat Document” extension or the letters “PDF.”

Step 5

Click the “Insert” button to close the “Browse” window and click the “OK” button to close the “Object” window. The PDF is inserted into the Word document, with each page of the PDF on a new page of the Word document.

Step 6

Click the “File” menu, click “Save As” and rename the Word document so as not to overwrite the original. Save the file to your computer.
