Attach pdf documents to an excel spreadsheet

Is it at all possible to attach pdf documents to a spreadsheet so that if you need to share the spreadsheet a copy of the pdfs go with it or can be printed with it if selected to?

You can insert a PDF document into a worksheet: on the Insert tab of the ribbon, in the Text group, click Object, then activate the Create from File tab.


If you do not tick the check box "Display as icon", the first page of the PDF file will be displayed, and printed with the workbook. To print the entire PDF, the user will have to double-click the PDF file top to open it in their default PDF viewer and print it from there.
