Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Whenever, I try to insert object from file in Excel or Word; what I got are icons from Word or Excel. I'm not finding others like jpg or even Acrobat. Only somekind of a package.exe icon is present and it is not working.
Create a new embedded object
Create a linked object or embedded object with existing information
=From a Microsoft Excel file
Note If you link data from a worksheet and select the Keep Source Formatting and Link to Excel option, the linked data will match the formatting in the Excel source file. If you select the Match Destination Table Style and Link to Excel option, the linked data will be formatted in the Word default table style.
With either option you can change the formatting of the linked object in the Word document. Formatting changes you make will remain when the data is updated in the source file.
=From other program files
=From an entire file
6. To display the linked object or embedded object as an icon — for example, if you want to minimize the amount of space the object uses in the document — select the Display as icon check box.
Note When you create an embedded object from information in an existing Microsoft Excel workbook, the entire workbook is inserted into your document. The document displays only one worksheet at a time. To display a different worksheet, double-click the Microsoft Excel object, and then click a different worksheet.
*I hope I fixed your problem.

First off I would uninstall Microsoft Office, then scan with anti-virus (such as AVG)CLICK HERE
and anti-spyware like Adware CLICK HERE
Run a registry repair program if you have one if not here's a free one
Reboot~ then install Office again, open Word and try again that should fix your problem, if not then repost with any new info and well try to fix any problems that may remain.
Thank you for stopping by Fixya!

You need the original Microsoft Office 2003 CD.
install the additional tools from the CD.
in order to do that, I suggest that you unistall the office from the control panel>>ad and remove programs.
install the Office from the CD, select custom and select all subcategories program.
the insert object is uder the format and tools. on the CD.

I will try to answer:
"I'm using Microsoft Office 2003 with Windows XP Professional. Having problems with inserting objects from file in MS applications.."
A: You can insert objects using the Insert menu on Top bar in MS Office application.
You can insert only certain file types. Using the 'Insert File' command however will insert only file Icon and and link to file.
"only icons like Excel, Word turns up. I can't find jpg., pdf., and other icons."
A: If you open the dropdown menu under insert and press the downarrows to expand dropdown menu, you will see that you have more options in there.
To insert a picture use insert picture.
You cannot merge part of a PDF file , or even a different text file, on an Office document just doing insert.
You need to open the other document and do copy and paste.

Did you recently installed any kind of software or program or downloaded any kind of file from web?
Seems to be trojan or virus that has deleted your system files. Scan your system with a good antivirus.
And to solve this problem restore your system to a previous date(when your system was last working fine). You can do it from start menu->programs->accesories->system tools->system restore.
Ask for clarification.
