Hi Everyone,

Happy new year to you all!
Im just wondering if any of you could kindly help with the below issue please?
Im not really sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I honestly don't know any other places to look for help!

So basically I am working on a PDF file, which contains a number of pages. I need to add a reference number and a name & date at the top of each page, ie:

the first page is: A100 Ann 07/01/2014
the second page is: A101 Ann 07/01/2014
the third page is: A102 Ann 07/01/2014

and so on.


However, since we can't work on PDF with VBA, my initial thoughts would be to convert the PDF into Word, in that way each page in the word doc would contains a image for each of the PDF page.

and then we can insert a text box at the top for each page, and input the content we need.

As for the content, it seem to be very easy to generate using excel.

So im just wondering, is it possible for word to automatically add a text box in each page and read the data from an excel file, and then just paste it in in each text box?

I know this is a lot of ask, and probably not unrealistic : (
Would be really grateful if you could share some of your thoughts?

Many thanks ;)
