EE,

What tool is required?

I have office and was able to convert a docx to PDF. Then my docx got lost (stupid folder redirection and synchronization overwrote my changes) so I tried converting my PDF back to DOCX but no luck. Keeps saying access denied.

Anyone do this and keep the same formating as the original DOCX?

Hello,

Word cannot read the PDF format natively. You will need to install a converter tool.

Microsoft has some hints here:

Here's Adobe's perspective

and a few links to other tools

A web search for "PDF to Word" will yield many more tools, some free, some not.

cheers, teylyn
