Inserting a word document page into another document

I have a 2 page document.  I want to insert a different 1 page word document, which has a different header and footer into this one (as a third page.)

Thanks,
JP

The tags to this question indicate Word 2007, and if that's the version you are using, the steps are slightly different. Instead of Insert | Break, you click the Page Layout tab, then click Break. Instead of File | Page Setup, you go to the Page Layout tab and click the tiny arrow at the bottom right corner of the Page Setup group. Instead of Insert | File, go to the Insert tab, then pull down the arrow beside Object and choose Text from file.

There's one thing I would add to what irudyk suggested. After you have inserted the other document, click on that new third page, then on the Insert tab, click the Header button, and choose Edit Header. A new Design tab will appear. Clear option called Link to Previous (click its button and it will pop back up). If you don't do this, then anything in the header of this new section will appear in the corresponding place in the old/existing/first section. It will drive you nuts until you break the link. Ditto for footers, by the way.

Try something like the following form within the doucment you want to add the 1 page Word document to:
  • Go to the end of the document
  • Select Insert | Break | Next page (section break)
  • Select File | Page Setup | Layout
  • Check the Different first page (Headers and Footers)
  • Select Insert | File
  • Locate and select the file you want to add and click the Insert button

Sure.  Under the Layout tab there is a section/heading called Header and Footers.  Under that section/heading there is an option called Different first page that you should check off.

All the comments were very helpful.  Lwebber's comment, sealed it, as the 'previous' header/footer was driving my nuts.

Thanks,

I meant to say "me" instead of "my".   :(
