Attaches a data from container to the document.
The description is optional, the parameter can be set to "". The embedded file is compressed if the parameter Compress is set to 1. Otherwise it is left uncompressed. It is not always useful to compress embedded files especially if the file is already compressed, e.g. Zip files or already compressed image formats require no further compression. In the worst case the compressed file becomes larger as the uncompressed version. However, text files and most document formats should be compressed to reduce the file size.
