I would like to insert a file into a spreadsheet, but it can not be linked. I know you can go to insert->object->create from file. But this only allows you to create it with an icon. I need to be able to click on a word and bring up a file.

Wildcard in VLOOKUP
Use =VLOOKUP("Apple*" to find apple, Apple, or applesauce

This may explain a little better, not really sure how to say it:

I need to insert a file into an excel document. It needs to be part of the excel file, it can not be linked to an outside file. Excel allows you to insert an object as an icon which is close to what I want to do.

The only problem is that I can not use an icon. I need to be able to link a cell to the inserted file. Sort of like a hyperlink, but the file will be contained in the spreadsheet like an inserted object.

I tried my best to explain what I'm trying to do. Thanks for your help.
