Embedded PDF in a excel 2007 will not open

I have a user that has a excel 2007 file with embedded PDF's. There is not problems opening the files embedded internally ... once the file is email to an external customer they are not able to open the embedded PDFs... You are able to copy and paste to desktop where it renames the file to scrap with a weird looking icon.. but you are still able to open it from the desktop.. please advise.

It sounds like the PDFs are not truely embedded but maybe an embedded link to the pdf. Such as when you open emails with embedded html that pulls pictures from the internet and displays them in the email, the pdf could be the same way.
