I used the Object-> Insert (create from file, display as icon) command in Microsoft word to insert a file as an icon. The file opened in Microsoft Word when i clicked the icon. I then converted the Word document to PDF. When I opened the PDF document in Adobe reader and clicked the inserted icon, it did not open the intended file. The icon is only displayed as an image. It has lost the link to the document.
Could someone please tell me why I am unable to open the file by clicking the icon like in Word?
How did you convert the Word document to PDF?
I did a save as PDF in word.
