Try doing that with Action Wizard.
Launch the PDF>Tools>Action Wizard>New Action>and choose the suitable option and see how it goes.
The other option would be combining multiple PDF' to one and then exporting that one PDF to a word file.
The New Action worked after I fiddled around with it a bit. Thank you so much!! I feel like that must be a common need so I'm not sure why it isn't a bit more user friendly or at least not featured prominently in "help".
