App: MS Word2002 SP3, MS Office XP
O/S: Windows 7 Prof, SPK 1
I would like to include Doc2 in Doc1, such that changes to Doc2 get reflected in Doc1 when you "update fields" in Doc1.
The filenames are as follows:
Both reside in the same folder -- C:\Temp
From WordHelp it seems that the "IncludeText" field will accomplish my objective.
I goto /Insert/Fields/IncludeText
In the "filename" box I enter Doc-Sub.doc
Then I click OK
What appears in Doc1 is
Error! Not a valid filename.
However if I change the Doc2 filename to DocSub.doc (ie, no hyphen), and repeat the process it works.
Does that mean for purposes of "IncludeText" filenames cannot contain special characters?
If so, are there any other ways to accomplish my objective.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
