PDF doesn't appear in Word 2007-any thoughts?

My co-worker recently asked how to do this and it works fine on my computer
but it doesn't work for them on their computer. We are using Word 2007 and
Publisher 2007.
1) I created a Publisher 2007 org chart and saved it as a PDF.
2) I inserted the PDF file into Word 2007 using Insert tab-Text group-Object
icon-Create from File tab-browse-selected Publisher PDF file.
3) the PDF file inserted fine in my Word 2007 file and displays as an
object. the org chart appears with a blue, dotted box around it with handles.
4) Here is the problem. When my co-worker does the exact same steps, it does
not show up in their Word 2007 file correctly.
5) they get the big box with a dotted line around it with blue handles.
However, the org chart does not appear.
6) When they double-click on the "empty box" it starts Adobe Reader and
shows the org chart as a PDF in Adobe Reader in a separate window.
Can anyone explain how to correct this and make the PDF org chart appear
corrected in my co-worker's Word file?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Click the Office button, and then click Word Options. In the Advanced
category, make sure that "Show drawings and text boxes on screen" is
selected and that "Show picture placeholders" is cleared. Click OK. Does
that help?
