Software Tip – Word (file drop)

Software Tip - File in fileWord – Dropping one file into another opened file

Back by Popular Demand (and on request by Linda Jeffers)


Often, I want to take one Word document and drop it into another Word document without cutting and pasting. The reason I usually want do this is because the document I’m dropping has a text box and/or other formatting. In this instance, a cut a paste function doesn’t recognize all that formatting.

There’s a very simple way to insert a file:

1) Click where you want to insert the other file on your working document.

2) On the Insert menu, click File.

3) In the File name box, enter the name of the file you want to insert.
