You can insert the content of previously-created Word documents into a new or different Word document.

  2. Go to Insert and select the arrow next to Object Object button with down arrow.

  3. Select Text from File.

  4. Locate the file that you want and then double-click it.

  5. To add in the contents of additional Word documents, repeat the above steps as needed.

Important: If you want to insert the header and footer also, be sure to insert the text from the file in a new section so that the header and footer are applied to only those pages. For more info on sections, see Insert a section break.
