Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files are essential for creating secure documents that restrict editing of the file. If you have a PDF document, and would like to insert a Word document into it, it may not be possible if you didn't create the PDF and the creator made it a restricted document. If the PDF was saved as an unrestricted document, or if you have editing capabilities and the password to a restricted document, you can insert the Word document.
