I am facing a problem with Microsoft Word 2007. I used the Insert->Object(Create New, Displays as icon)feature to insert a file into Word. I could open the file by clicking the icon displayed. However, after i saved the Word document as PDF and opened that PDF document, i could no longer click the icon to open the inserted file. The icon no longer serves as a link to the file but instead it is only displayed as an image

Pls install this Office 2007 add-in called Save as PDF or XPS. Download it from here...

http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=7

Once installed, you can choose Save As pdf from the File menu.

Why not copy & paste the contents of the Wordpad/Notepad document into Word? Then save it as a pdf document.

Right. Is the wordpad/notepad document saved on a shared location, such as network drive or a shared folder? This is important because the link will be the location of the wordpad/notepad document.

In Word 2010...

Insert > object > Object > Create from File. Browse for the file. Put a tick to Link to File AND Display as Icon.

Once you have the icon on the Word document, right-click on it. Select Hyperlink. Click 'Existing File or Web Page'. Locate the wordpad/notepad document. Click OK.

Save as PDF file.

So now when the other user clicks on the icon, it should open the wordpad/notepad document.

Phew!
