One of the reasons that Microsoft Word remains a popular productivity tool despite alternatives like Google Docs is because it is compatible with many file formats – you can insert images, spreadsheets, clip art, and PDF files into your documents.
Depending on your needs, there are two ways to include a PDF in a Word document: you can insert it as an object, like an image, or you can open the PDF in the document, so that Word imports it as editable text.
How to insert an editable PDF into a Word document
The easiest way to insert a PDF into your Word document is to open it using the File menu. Word converts the PDF to Word format, so the PDF can be edited along with any other text or images in the document.
To do this, start Word and choose File so You open . Locate the PDF and select it. Word will automatically import it into the document and will now be fully editable like the rest of the document.
How to insert a PDF into a Word document as on object
