Default Merge a .docx into a table in existing .docx

Would like to merge another docx into a cell in a table that exists in another Word file.




That is, I have a table in my Word file with 2 cells in landscape mode. On the right half of this page, I have some text. On the left half I need to merge another .docx file.


Any and all help appreciated,
Mark

Do you mean like Insert Tab > Insert Group >Text from file?

I actually discovered how to do this using insert-object-text from file.


Now for the bigger challenge, I need to do this in a mailmerge. That is, each page of this docx gets info from Excel, which also contains the path and file name of the docx iI need to merge.


Anyone have any help they can give?


Thanks,
Mark
