Adding a PDF to Excel may sound more complicated than it really is. The good news is that it only takes a few minutes and that the steps are easy to remember.
So, the next time you have to send a PDF in an Excel file, you won’t have to bother anyone to do it for you. Let’s see how you can add that PDF to the Excel file.
How to Include a PDF File into Excel
Once you have the Excel file open, go to the Insert tab, followed by the Text option, and choose the Object option.
When the Object window appears, click on the Create from File tab, followed by the Browse option. Look for and select your PDF file.
Once you select the PDF file, the path of the file will appear in the Object box. If you want the entire PDF to be shown completely, just click on OK.
Suppose you’re looking for a less meddlesome way. You can always click on the Display as icon option. If you choose this option, you’re going to see an icon that when you click on it, open in whatever program you have set as your preferred PDF.
To turn your file into a live document, just check the box for the Link to file option.
It’s also possible to choose both options, and by doing so, a less obtrusive way of reaching your file is created. To customize the PDF, right-click on the icon and select the Format Object option.
The new window you’ll see gives you various options. For example, you can do things such as Crop, modify the size, change the color, and if you don’t want the icon to show up when you print it out, go to Properties and check the box that says Print object.
If you want the icon of the file to change size according to the size of the cell, it’s in, go to the Properties tab and click on the Move and size with cells and click OK.
You can add more than once PDF if you want to. Now you know what you need to do if you’re going to change things up a little.
