Inserting PDF Files Into drawings

I am trying to insert a PDF file onto a drawing.

I have a very detailed submittable I want to insert into one of my drawings, the vendor will not send it as an AutoCAd file. I am trying to save some drawing time.

Which version of AutoCAD?

If you are using an earlier version of AutoCAD, you should try to convert the PDF file to a JPG in order to attach.
