We have an attorney who is trying to place various PDF files within a word document.  He doesn't want the body of the PDF, he wants it to have the PDF icon and then the users can double click it.  Is this possible?

You can do it quite simply...

I have Office 2010 but I assume it should work on any. Go to insert > Object > and then select Adobe Acrobat Document.

Do Insert Object. On the Create from File tab, choose your PDF file. Click
"Display as icon". By default, Word will use the generic PDF icon, but you
can change that if you wish. Click OK.
