Recently, I had to take a few pages out of a PDF document and put them into a Word document that I needed to send to a client. But i have no idea how to insert the PDF pages into word document on one time?--- Aseem Kishore/Answerbank

I am trying to insert a 3 page pdf document into a 2004 Word for Mac doc. If I insert as a picture or drag and drop, I can only see the first page of the pdf in my Word doc.What should i do?---Loo/Google groups

Have you ever come across the similar problems? These days, i concentrated myself on finding some solutions, which can help to insert pdf into word document directly for free. After studied numerous websites, forums, blogs, i tested several solutions by myself. Now i am trying to show you some of my idea of how to Insert Single Page PDF into Word and How to insert multiple page pdf into word.

How to Insert Single Page PDF into Word with Microsoft Word

  • Step 1: Click Insert.

  • Step 2: Click Object on the toolbar.

  • Step 3: In the Object dialogue box, click Create from File and then click Browse to find the PDF you want to insert. 


That is about it. The Insert ribbon is a slightly different appearance in each version of Office(no matter for Windows or for Mac), but the Object button is always right there.The inserted pdf page can not be edited though, it can successfully insert a pdf into word document at least.

Inserting a single page is easy enough. If you want to insert multiple page of PDF? Can you use the same way? Would the result be the same? Unfortunately, it failed. When i tried to insert a multiple page PDF file into Word, i found only the first page of the file is showed in Word.Then what should i do if i want to insert multiple Page pdf into Word? Here below i will give two kinds of method for your choice.

How to insert multiple Page pdf into Word
