tried various alternatives and I'll definetly try the attachment
later because that asks for 'attachfile.sty' that I don't have (yet).
For now the best alternative offered is the web version!

When I want to put a link to a file in LaTeX, I use \href with an url  
that starts with run:, as in

\href{run:./excels/file.xls}{open the excel file}

You can put the pdf and the excel files in a folder, zip it in the  
finder and send the zip file to whomever you want; and they'll get  
everything in place just by double-clicking the zip archive and  
running the pdf within. Works like a charm.

(By the way, this also a possible alternative for a movie inclusion,  
if it gives too much trouble; just put a link to the movie instead of  
embedding it)
