Convert a PDF to Word in Office 365

How do I convert a PDF to WORD....I was told that Office 365 can do that for me free.  Am I correct?  If so, how do I do that?

SImply use File>Open in Word and from the File Type dropdown select PDF Files (*.pdf)

Then, select the file that you want to open and then click on the Open button.

Hope this helps,

@ What's so hard about PDF text extraction?       
https://www.filingdb.com/pdf-text-extraction
There is a common view that extracting text from a PDF document should not be too difficult. After all, the text is right there in front of our eyes and humans consume PDF content all the time with great success. Why would it be difficult to automatically extract the text data?
Turns out, much how working with human names is difficult due to numerous edge cases and incorrect assumptions, working with PDFs is difficult due to the extreme flexibility given by the PDF format.
The main problem is that PDF was never really designed as a data input format, but rather, it was designed as an output format giving fine grained control over the resulting document.

PDF/A- Understanding the PDF/A Format
http://wordribbon.tips.net/T010728_Understanding_the_PDF_A_Format.html
Roy knows that in Word he can save a file to PDF format. He recently was informed at a Federal Court that he had to save his documents in "PDF/A" format. Roy hasn't heard of the "PDF/A" format prior to this encounter, so he wonders if Word can save documents in "PDF/A" format and how the format is different from the regular PDF format.
PDF/A is a variation that is optimized for long-term storage of the documents. Essentially, the format has everything embedded in it, rather than allowing internal links to external information. In addition, some objects aren't even allowed in a PDF/A document at all.
