    Tried that but the inset just comes up as a box with lines runing through it.

    I didnt mention it is a secured PDF Format file

    I suspect it's the 'secured' bit that's causing the problem. I've never used this myself so can't say if it's any good but you could try this link to remove the security protection and then try inserting it.

    There are some free online PDF to Word converters, Google should come up with quite a few. Again not something I've really used so can't make recommendations.

    Could you not just send someone the link to it on HMRC so they can print one out, or have I got the wrong end of the stick.......again

    It's a bit of a fudge but you could try taking a screen-shot and paste it in your document as an image.

    hi

    if it is just one page you could try to select it and copy and paste it into word (paste special) as an enhanced picture.


    then go to the picture, select it and in word find the picture tools > format> text wrapping> tight


    you then should be able to modify the picture and even write on it ...

    Thats how i used the VAT form on pdf into my word report


    hope that helps
