Is there a way to launch a .pdf file in a .doc file?

Is there a way to launch a .pdf file in a place like a .doc file? We have a help manual in a Word document that is launched in place, with a SaveOptions field set to "0" so the reader cannot save any edits to the document. I have converted the Word document to a .pdf file, but am unable to launch the .pdf in place with the Acrobat Reader controls. We have Notes 5.10 and our users have Acrobat Reader 4.0.
The in-place activation is something the embedded object must support or you can't use it. MS Word has this capability; apparently Acrobat Reader does not. I guess you'll have to launch it in a separate window.

Alternately, you could turn your documentation into a Notes database, allowing users to make use of Notes' full-featured searching capability as well as links to information in other databases.
