Default Insert Object into Word Document only appears as Icon, without selecting display as Icon

Hi All,



I am trying to insert an object from file into my word document, a pdf file in this case. but when i insert it, it only shows up as an icon, even though i didnt select show as icon.

I have tried with various different file types and they all appear as an icon.

I have never encountered this problem before, and can't find anything about it on a google search.

Any help be great

Are you running 32 bit or 64 bit Office (to find out, click File | Account | About Word)? There have been some reports on OLE problems with the 64 bit version.
