Is there any way of inserting more than one file at a time into Microsoft Word or, to put it another way, merging lots of Word files into one file with minimum effort?
If all your files are in one folder, then open that folder click edit, select all files and then copy, open word and click paste.
Dear Jonny,Thanks for that. However, when I try this, with a variety of PCs and different versions of Word, all I get is "insufficient memory" - and that with nothing else running.Also, when this works, is it necessary to have all the files in their own folder and select the complete folder - or is it also possible to "shift/click" to select just some of the files?Cheers
You can select as many or as little files as you like, however if your getting "insufficient memory" messages, do it in stages, i.e. 5 docs at a time, you can also drag and drop.
drag n drop from different folders into the same word doc that is.
Sorry - I'm obviously being ultra-thick and have missed something basic but it just doesn't work.I am in Explorer, highlight a number of files (note these files are each very small - only about 300 letters), go to a Word file and paste? Only the first file copies.If I highlight the folder and copy and paste I get the "insufficient memory" message.D&D doesn't seem to work either
what version of office are you using?
Office 2000 - with XP on one PC and NT on another
lost on this one, i use office xp pro, maybe another 2000 user has another suggestion?
With the recipient Word doc open,go Insert/File,navigate to the folder,highlight all the files you wish to paste,and click insert.
Dear Jonny - thanks for trying - maybe I'll load XP.Dear Leo - how does one highlight all of the files? The normal shift click doesn't operate.
