How to combine multiple Word documents

Have you ever needed to combine more than one Word document into a single file?

Have you ever needed to combine more than one Word document into a single file? If so, you probably did a lot of cutting and pasting--but there's an easier way. Here's the three-step process:

1. Within the main document, position your cursor at the spot where you want to insert the other document.

2. Click Insert, File.

3. Find the document you want to insert, click it, and then click the Insert button.

Like magic, the second document appends to the first one. Need to insert additional documents? Just repeat the process. Remember to save the newly expanded document with a new file name, assuming you want to keep the original intact.
