I have 2 word documents.
1 contains an image using the code { INCLUDEPICTURE "C:\\IMAGE.JPG" }

The 2nd document includes first document using the code { INCLUDETEXT "C:\\DOC1.DOCX" }

When opening doc2, the image in doc1 does not display.
DOC1.docx
DOC2.docx

Try adding the MERGEFORMAT switch to you field:

{ INCLUDEPICTURE "C:\\IMAGE.JPG" \* MERGEFORMAT }

{ INCLUDETEXT "C:\\DOC1.DOCX" \* MERGEFORMAT}

Did you also apply the MEGERFORMAT switch to the fields in doc1?
