past .doc in .dwg

I have a co-worker who is trying to paste a .doc file in a Cad drawing. His document is 4 pages long, but for some reason only 1 page shows up on his drawing.

I did not have a solution to his problem, since i've never had to paste a .doc in a Cad drawing before.

Would someone be able to explain why this is happening, and what is the proper way to do this?

He is working with AutoCad 2004

OLE limitation, usually 1-sheet.

Either do it 4-times, or show your co-worker how to use Mtext instead.

He can import the doc into Mtext editor, but he will have to save it as rich text format (rtf) first.
