Sometimes you want to insert the contents of an entire Word document
into another Word document. There is a quicker way than using copy and paste.

Word has a feature that lets you insert the contents of one file
into another file. To do this:

  • Open the document which is to receive the existing file
  • Put the cursor in the place you want the file to go
  • From the ribbon go to: Insert tab, Text section, Object and then Text from File
  • Navigate through your folder structure and select the file you want
  • Double click on the file and the document will be added

You may want to insert the document into its own section if
you are using Headers and Footers.

The above applies to Word 2007 and later. If you have an earlier
version of Word the same feature is found here

  • Open the document which is to receive the existing file
  • Put the cursor in the place you want the file to go
  • From the menu select Insert, File
  • Navigate through your folder structure and select the file you want
  • Double click on the file and the document will be added
