Sometimes you’ll want to insert one saved document into another document. For example, you might want to insert your quarterly reports so that you can edit them to create an annual report. In this situation, it would be tedious to have to select and copy the text of each report and then paste it into the annual document. Instead, you can have Word insert the existing documents for you. Let’s position the cursor where you want to insert the existing document and then:

Objectarrow on the
- In the list, click

Insertbutton to insert it at the cursor.
The contents of the selected document are inserted into the currently displayed document (and the originating document remains unchanged if you modify the contents in the current document).
The other option available when you click the
Insert button’s drop-down arrow in the Insert File dialog box is
Insert as Link. Use this option if the source file is being maintained separately and might change.
