Any help pleasE?
In InDesign you can't open PDFs, you can only import (place) them. File > Place... choose the file, show import options to be able to select the correct page and pdf box.
There are existing several plugin you could buy which will extend the functionality of InDesign and one of them will let InDesign open pdf files. But this comes not with InDesign, you have to buy it extra.
