    Is there a way to compress a Word 2010 file for insertion in another Word 2010 file as an icon that would open when double-clicked the same as is done with a Word file that's an attachment to an email?

    In word 2007 the steps are: Insert ribbon/Object button/Create from File tab/Browse for file and check Display as icon. Might be similar for 2010.

    Thank you very much - That works just fine. I'll tuck the instructions away for future use.
