There are many times when you might want to create a single PDF from multiple files. Perhaps you want to submit a report consisting of textual Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, graphs and digital photographs after adding a PDF cover sheet? Luckily, this is quick and easy to achieve using Acrobat -- assuming you have version 6 or 7, that is!

Simply:

  1. Select File > Create PDF > From Multiple Files within Acrobat 6 or 7.
  2. Browse to select all files to combine. All supported file formats will be visible.
  3. Rearrange the order of these documents using the Remove, Move Up or Move Down buttons.
  4. Click OK and save your output file by selecting File > Save As or by clicking the 'Save' icon on the Acrobat toolbar.
