Acrobat 8 Combine Files - Word, Excel = "Problem Files" Any help? - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

Hello, I just puchased Acrobat 8 for the Mac specifically to combine multiple files from different programs into one professional doent (hopefully with new pagination). I installed the program today and tried this out with a couple of test files. 2 Word files, 1 Excel and 1 PDF. The Word and Excel Files brought up a red messege stating that they were "problem files" and that they could not be combined. Only the PDF worked. I tried out different Word and Excel Files. No dice.

    Default Acrobat 8 Combine Files - Word, Excel = "Problem Files" Any help?

    Hello,

    I just puchased Acrobat 8 for the Mac specifically to combine multiple files from different programs into one professional doent (hopefully with new pagination). I installed the program today and tried this out with a couple of test files. 2 Word files, 1 Excel and 1 PDF. The Word and Excel Files brought up a red messege stating that they were "problem files" and that they could not be combined. Only the PDF worked. I tried out different Word and Excel Files. No dice. Seeing as how this is an advertised function of the software, I can't understand why it won't work.

    Do any of you have experience with this and possibly know what I am doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    I believe that's only available for the Windows version.

    You can always convert them to PDF in advance then combine those.

    I don't know why it doesn't work, but try breaking the problem down.
    Can the files be converted separately? Do you have Word and Excel
    installed?

    No it will not create a pdf from a Word doc either. I understand that I can easily create a pdf within Word by using the Adobe plugin or actually just selecting PDF from Apple's print dialogue. This is a fix. But....this is an advertised and doented feature in Acrobat 8, so it should work correctly. If it doesn't, Adobe should state this on their product page, so as not to mislead customers. Especially when they do not offer a Mac trial.

    I don't know why it doesn't work,




    Because it's not a Mac feature. Never has been. All it can convert/combine are image formats, InDesign, html, text and ps/eps files
