    Default insert pdf into excel spreadsheet

    Hi
    Google says insert... text .. object .. file .. pdf
    My Onlyoffice and MS Office versions have no option on insert toolbar to do this.
    Any hints please?

    If its the Online you are using then NO it wont, that's a cut down version. Earlier paid versions Of Office may or may not have the option.

    The paid versions from MS have full options.

    If you want a free Office Package that does allow the inserting, Freeoffice will do it. https://www.freeoffice.com/en/freeoffice

    From textmaker (word) Insert - OLE Object Frame - You can select an existing PDF>

    You select Adobe PDF then click on Create From File, browse to the PDF you want to insert from your computer, OK. it embeds it into the Document as a Icon.


    If you install Free office 1st thing I suggest is change the formats on all 3 programs to MS formats ( same paths on all) --- ( Text= Word , Plan Maker = Excel, Presentations = Power point).

    You have to register to get the free Licence but that's no biggie.

    Maybe you should think about installing a free office version that does what you want.

    its all trade offs with free stuff isn't it. FreeOffice doesn't open files in tabs which I prefer so there you go.
    I've got around it by taking a screenshot (bank statement in cashflow )in this case and inserting image instead of the pdf.
    Next step paid program but hard to justify for my usage.

    Correct, the Free version doesn't but the paid one does. ( it says on their site)

    You can open multiple documents in separate windows on the free version.
