As has been written many times on this list...
You can attachment any document that has a Windows file association and can
be opened by the appropriate external application.
In the Exhibit Log, you right-click and select Insert new text / External
On the Insert new exhibit screen, you change the filetype from 'All Texts
(*.rtf, *.txt)' to 'All files (*.*)' and browse to the file (a Word file in
your case0 and select the file and then click [Open] and the file will be
linked and show in the Exhibit Log.
The exhibit will show in the Exhibit Log and can be viewed from the Exhibit
Log. The viewing process will open the Word document in Word.
The contents of the Word file will not be output in TMG reports (since the
contents are not text).
In v7, this process will be clarified and will be more obvious and easier.
