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.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch Microsoft Word.

  2. 2

    Open the file that you would like to insert into the PDF.

  3. 3

    Pull down the "Edit" menu and click on "Select All" to highlight the entire document. (Keyboard shortcut: Put your cursor in the document, hold down "Control" and type "A").

  4. 4

    Pull down the "Edit" menu and click on "Copy" to copy the entire document. (Keyboard shortcut: "Control/C")

  5. 5

    Launch Adobe Acrobat.

  6. 6

    Open the PDF file and enter the access password.

  7. 7

    Place your cursor where you would like to insert the Word document.

  8. 8

    Pull down the "Edit" menu and click on "Paste" to insert the entire Word document. (Keyboard shortcut: "Control/V")

Tips and warnings

  • If you would like to convert your PDF file into another file format, such as a Word document, a PowerPoint document or an HTML document, free converter software such as Able2Extract PDF Converter or DeskPDF Converter can be downloaded online. PDF files that are converted to a Word document can be edited in Word and the resaved as a new PDF.
