Problem with inserting PDF into Word 2010


Hello Dear,

I think it causes for adobe acrobat program starting problem. Can you start adobe acrobat program separately ?

Try to start Acrobat reader self without ms word, if it is possible then should try add/remove features of ms office components or reinstall ms office with full features.

If your acrobat reader does not run separately then you should remove it and reinstall it. Then through ms office with object. That's all.

Thank you I hope this will meet your demand.

Problem with inserting PDF into Word 2010


So, exactly how are you trying to insert the PDF file into your Word document?
To insert a PDF file into a Word document as it is, do the following steps:

1. Click on the ‘Insert’ tab.

2. In the ‘Text group’ format, click on ‘Object’.

3. In the ‘Object’ dialog box, click ‘Adobe Acrobat Document’, then click OK.

4. Browse the .pdf file which you want to insert, chose it and then click Open.
If you want to see it into your word just copy it from the PDF and paste into the Word, or use the Insert > Object as according to the pictures.

Follow it.

If you trying to convert the PDF to Word by using the word, for that I can assure you that word doesn't have any converter capable.

There are many third-party converters which can read a PDF and convert it into the word document; they're basically known as OCR programs.
