For a document in plain text format, you can copy and paste the full text of that file into a note, just as Alfred described.

However, if it is a Word document and you want it to remain in Word format then you can go to the Edit Person window, click on the MULTIMEDIA tab, Click on the ADD button, for "Type of Scrapbook Item" select FILE.
Now click on the BROWSE button and locate the Word document that you want to include in the scrapbook.
Then give it whatever Caption or Description you want.
Click on the OK button.
Now if you want to view the Word document, highlight it and click on the View/Edit button.
MS Word will be launched and you can then view the document.

Note, however, that documents in scrapbooks will not be printed in any RM reports you might run. If you want the text of those documents to appear in RM reports, you will need to insert them as plain text in NOTES for individuals, families, or facts, etc.
