Since we went to the 2007 version of Office, Word does not add all of the pages of an Adobe document  (We are not adding Adobe as an icon. We are adding hte contents of the PDF into Word) WE are using Office 2007 and Adobe Std. 9.1.

I am looking for a fix, not to convert it back to Word or take snap shots of each page, etc.etc.  it worked before so soemting is broken, but I do not know what.
This is how we do it now in 2007 and it worked fine adding it as an object in 2003.
 - Open Word Document
 - Click in the document where you want to insert the contents of the PDF file
 - Go to the Insert tab
 - Go to Insert Object
 - Choose Object Type Adobe Acrobat Document
 - Click OK
 - When the Open dailog box pops up, locate the PDF file and doubleclick on it to open it.
 - Close the Adobe file and go to the Word file. it only copied the first page of the 3 sheets that are in the PDF file. I have tried this with severral PDF's and it does the same thing. Only inserts the first page of the Adobe file. The is the most bizarre thing.

Does anyone know how to fix this?   Do I need to make changes to the options, etc?

Thank you,
