There is not a way to link or combine files in Microsoft Word However, there is a very easy and quick way to copy all information in a document and then add it to another document.

Here is an example:

If you have a page or pages of information in File A that you want to do a complete copy of and paste in File B You need to open both files first then move to File A and press down on your Ctrl Key and then the letter "a" This will highlight and activate everything on the File A then press down on the Ctrl Key again and the letter "c" this will copy everything that is activated from the previous step Now move to your File B and place your cursor where you want this material to start pasting the copied material at You will need to hold down your Ctrl key and then the letter "v" Now all information from File A should appear on File B

This can be continued for as many files as you need to copy from (one at a time) and paste into another your document.
