Detaching attached/embedded files from Word



I can easily embed an object into Word, the problem is I want to detach that
embedded object. I know i can double click to open if the embedded file is
another Office document or text file. I need to embed a file from the hard
drive into a Word document, but then have a person getting the Word document
be able to detach the file and use it. This appears to not be possible in
Word. Does anyone know of a work around. The file is not an executable file,
just an object file that has to be imported by a program and otherwise unless
able to be detached and imported via this other program.
