How Can I Keep Embedded Documents in a PDF Conversion of a Word Document?

I am running XP and using Word 2010.  I have a document that contains embedded Word documents.  I can convert the document to PDF but I loose the embedded documents when I do.  Is there a way to keep them available in the PDF version?  I can "attach" them, but don't know how to make those attachments obvious to a reader.


Any help you can give would be appreciated.

    Something embedded in a Word file isn't going to migrate to PDF with the Word file's "page content".

    If the embedded files are support use Acrobat to convert them to PDF.

    Combine the PDFs.

    Configure this PDF to open with the Bookmarks showing.

    (Document Properties > Initial View)

    Edit / add Bookmarks as desired.


    Be well...
