    Does {includetext} limit the file types?
    {includetext} fails to support PDF.
    If it's the case, how to insert a pdf file into a DOCX?
    Thanks in advance.

    Basically, INCLUDETEXT works with the file type that you can open in Word as listed in the Files of type dropdown in the Open dialog - Word documents, text files, HTML files, RTF files, etc.
    PDF files cannot be opened in Word, so they cannot be used with INCLUDETEXT.

    You can include a PDF file as an object in Word. Only the first page will be displayed, but the user can double-click the object to view it in their PDF viewer.
    To insert an object:
    - Activate the Insert tab of the ribbon.
    - In the Text section, click Object.
    - Click Create from file.
    - Click Browse...
    - Select the file, then click Insert.
    - If you want to create a link to the source file, tick the Link to file check box.
    - Click OK.

    Hi HansV,

    Your method indeed works precisely as I look for.
    Nonetheless, the image quality is horrible.

    Indeed, it's the perfect conclusion. Thanks.
