Insert Preview into word


Is there a way to insert a preview of a PDF file into a Word Document??

Hi Ubaldo,

Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, you can insert word/pdf/excel files in word document at any place. First you need to move the cursor to the desired position in document where you want to insert OLE object at. Once the cursor is moved, please use the following code for example to insert Pdf document from file as a normal OLE object using custom presentation image. In this case, when you double click on the OLE object, it will open linked document in a new Pdf window:

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
Shape oleObject = builder.insertOleObject("D:\\temp\\Some.pdf", "Acrobat.Document.DC", false, false, null);

I hope, this helps.

Best regards,
I tried with the example that you gave me, but i didnt get the preview of the PDF file, I took a screenshot of what I got with the example that you gave me and a screenshot of what Im looking for

I´m sending the a PDF file, the Original Document, the Document created with Aspose.Words for Java, and a Screenshot of the document.

The Original Document was coded with Delphi, but we are trying to upgraded with Java.

Thanks for your support.

Hi Ubaldo,

I think, you can first Convert Pdf Page to Image by using Aspose.Pdf for Java and then pass this image to DocumentBuilder.insertOleObject method.

Best regards,
