Trying to combine Word 2007 Files residing in SharePoint into a Master Doc RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have multiple word files that I'd like to pull into 1 mast word file.  All the files reside in SharePoint.  I've used the Master / Subdocument feature in previous versions of Word but do not see that here.  So I'm trying to do it with inserting linked text or inserting a file linked to the original.

    Why am I trying to do this?  This project could wind up with a huge amount of documentation.  In the past when I've created big word files, they become corrupt.  By making smaller files then using the Master / Sub document feature in the past, I've been able to create large documents while avoiding them becoming corrupt.

    In addition creating smaller files allows editing / revisions without having to go through a large document to get to what needs to be edited.


    I tried linking other word files by inserting as an object, but only the 1st page of that file appears.

    I tried inserting text and linking back to the original file, and absolutley nothing happens.


    And finally, when I insert text from another file, it changes the font and messes up the margins and tables.  All my files are Ariel font, yet the inserted text become Verdun.

    Any advice?

  • Thanks, I'll do that.  Since I'm using both applications, wasn't sure which forum to post this on.
