I just tried it, u have to select insert object / change the tab to create from file.

Then select the pic. However it's blank. BUT if u double click on it the pic should appear.

Why are you using Wordpad? If you want to do complex formatting, etc, in a document, it's not the best to use. Do you have Word? If not try Open Office, it's free.

I don't have Open Office installed at the moment but you could start OO then try opening your file in the program then save it as either a Word document or Rich Text Format (.rtf) document.

Alternatively you could copy and paste the contents of your Wordpad document into a new document in OO and save as required.

Remember to keep the original Wordpad document and "Save As" all copies created in OO whilst experimenting.
