Embedding PDFs to Excel 2016 Mac

Hi,

I am running Excel 2016 for Mac version 15.26 and Adobe Acrobat Pro DC version 2015.017.20053

I am trying to insert PDFs by going to Insert -> Object -> From file -> and I receive the following warning:

Alert " Can not insert object"

Both softwares are up to date. I have tried with different PDFs and the problem persists.

Please advise.

Thanks

Hello Strung, I am afraid that these options were available in Office for Mac 2010, but not in 2015 anymore, which is the version or Rod.

And the import options that are available from the File menu are just... CSV, FileMaker, HTML or a Text file.

Another long and very inefficient option would be to add it as an hyperlink... something like saving the pdf somewhere in the network and then invoking it from there (which sounds crazy).

Thank you for your comments.

Schnellsolutions, I can see the option to insert picture, but one page solution does not help me here.

I am now trying to achieve the same via Windows 7, Office 2016 and it works fine.

I guess a update should fix this in the future.
Yeap, it usually does not achieve the desired purpose. But some people make it braking the PDF in multiple images and then loading it into office (which is not efficient).
