Quick Tip:
Need to Merge Multiple Files Into One Document? Here’s the Answer …

One of the most convenient things about Adobe Acrobat is its ability to combine different files into one PDF for emailing, filing, or archiving.

This capability might not come as news to you – but did you know that you can also merge files from different source programs, such as Word, PowerPoint, email, Excel, etc.? And you can do it without even converting those files into PDF first.

Supported file types will automatically be converted during the merging process. You can even choose to merge specific document pages.

Here’s how:

  1. Open Adobe Acrobat.

  2. Choose File > Create PDF > From Multiple Files.

  3. Under “Add Files,” browse for the files you want to merge. After choosing the files, arrange them in the order you want them in the final document. You also have the option of merging all open PDF files.

  4. Choose File > Save As in order to save the resulting PDF document.

That was easy!
