Hi all,

I have a main word document and have created different template (dot) files which I want to re-use so I have saved them as different files (templates)..

How can I insert a template file into a blank page on my current word document please?

Thanks

What version of Word are you using?
I am looking at Work XP (2002) and under Tools, Compare and Merge, it will allow you to insert another Word doc or Template (.dot) file in to the current one.
Let me know if your version of Word does not have this option, and what version you are using.

There are quite a few ways.  The best for you would depend on your circumstances.

Copy and paste is the most obvious. Or you can use an INCLUDETEXT field. Microsoft would probably recommend that the items are saved as Quick parts.
