Creating a document is not always about creating a new one and inputting new information that you have in hand
Creating a document is not always about creating a new one and inputting new information that you have in hand. Sometimes you will have to combine and merge information from other documents and software. For example, you may have to pull through information from an excel spread sheet, or link a document with a PDF document and sometimes you would have created several individual documents in the word processor and you may have to link or combine them all together into one single document.
For example, in order to combine multiple word documents into one single document, you need to ?rst create a blank document and set the page layout similar to the documents that are going to be merged. You can also open one of the documents to be combined, click save as and save it as a new document with a different name and then erase its contents thereby preserving the layout.
To insert contents of a document, click on the Insert menu -> Click ?le and in the Insert ?le dialog window, choose all the documents that you want to merge or combine by pressing the Ctrl key and clicking on the required ?les. Then click on the insert button. This will insert the documents into the blank new document.
If you want to insert the document as link style than click on the small down arrow next to insert and click insert as link. Now the selected documents will be merged and combined into one single document.
In a similar manner, you can insert images, hyperlinks, diagrams, resize and position them and link information in a document to another source.
