Thanks a ton, Xie. Placing the file to be attached   in the temp location  
helped. 

 

Many thanks,

Is it because lyx is trying to compile your file in a temp folder, but the file 
you want to attach was not copied over to the temp location, so a relative path 
(relative to the actual lyx file, not the temp file) doesn't work?

I am also new to lyx, so lyxers, please correct me if I am wrong.

Xie Chao

Xie,

 

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.

I guess you are looking for this:
http://www.ctan.org/get/macros/latex/contrib/attachfile/attachfile.pdf

You can use this LaTeX package to attach files in your PDF.

You can convert the document that you want to include to PDF. Then you can insert it via PDFpages, 
see sec. 6.1 of the EmbeddedObjects manual that you find in LyX's Help menu.

for text files you can also probably abuse the listing package to include an 
external program
insert-file-child document
and change the type to program listing. Verbatim may also give you what you 
want.

insert->file->child document
