MS Word 2007 only inserts the first apge of an Adobe PDF file.

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,

Just out of curiosity, when you insert the PDF in your Word document in Word 2003, what is the field code?  

I inserted the PDF into my Word document, selected it, and pressed Shift+F9 to see the field code.  I get this result:
{ EMBED AcroExch.Document.7  }

I wonder if there is a field code that you somehow get into your Word 2003.  It's a thought.

I get the same field code : { EMBED AcroExch.Document.7  } I am not sure if we had another add-in or not. i'll have to cehck with our team that creates the image.  Does an add-iin exist for this sort of thing?
jkunrein

I couldn't tell you if an add-in exists or not.  Before this question popped up, I didn't even know that one could insert multiple pages of a PDF.  

Do you have anything unusual when you go into Word 2003 and click on Tools | Templates and Add-Ins?  Typically, the template should be attached to Normal.dot, and there probably aren't any loaded global templates and add-ins, but you might have some tool attached that lets you do that in 2003.

It is not a viable solution to export the pdf (batch using Acrobat Pro) to JPG or TIFF and then insert into Word that way?
Berkson Wein

My solutions outlined viable options for Word 2007.  Word 2003 doesn't have the requested automatically functionality either, even though the OP thinks it did.
