To add a PDF to Microsoft Word, click “Insert” on the ribbon and then add an object. Go to the “Create from File” tab and browse to your PDF file to insert.

Microsoft Word provides a plethora of features to handle content. One of these unique features is the ability to insert a PDF file directly into Word, and it can be done in just a few steps. That is how.

To easily insert a PDF file into your Word document, insert it as an object. If you do this, then the PDF essentially becomes part of the Word document. That means any changes made to the source PDF file No it will be reflected in the file embedded in the Word document unless you link to the source file, which we’ll explain later.

Now you need to decide if you want to (1) link directly to the source file and/or (2) display the PDF as an icon. Linking directly to the source file is a good idea if you want the inserted PDF file to reflect any new changes made to the source file. Be sure to enable this option if that’s your goal.

Displaying the PDF as an icon is good if you don’t want to take up too much space on the page. If you do not enable any of these options, the PDF will be displayed in its entirety in the Word document and will not reflect any new changes made to the source file.

When you’re ready, select “OK.”

The PDF will now be inserted into the Word document.
