Many thanks to everyone for their responses.




The `attachfile’ package you suggested works great if I export  lyx file to tex 
format and then convert the tex file to pdflatex. However, if I try converting 
the lyx file  to pdflatex directly, it  throws me an error –  “pdftex error: 
cannot open file for embedding” . 

It doesn’t seem to locate the  file. Any pointers on how to resolve this would 
be very helpful.


Thank you.

This may  sound strange, but does anybody know if its possible to embed text
file or doc file in a PDF generated from Lyx/Latex?  I have seen facility to
attach documents to PDFs through  Adobe writer.  Is the same possible
through Lyx/Latex?
