I need to add a PDF document to a Word document and preserve it's formatting. The PDF in question only has one page. Ideally I would like to add it similar to adding an Excel Object. I don't need to be able to edit it. It would be nice if the text would remain selectable once I export the entire document to PDF, but it would not be the end of the world if it didn't.

If you have Acrobat you can export the PDF as a Word document then wrap whatever you want around it... Otherwise, you can add a PDF in Word by clicking Insert -> Object -> then selecting Adobe Acrobat Document. I can't verify if this works without Acrobat on your computer or not though.

  • Weird, the second option did not work the first time I tried it.
