Did you read the Combine Multiple Word Documents 'Sticky' thread at the top of this forum (https://www.msofficeforums.com/word-...documents.html)?

HI Paul,
Thanks for replaying ton this post.

Yes I tried this ( But this doesn't work for me) i tried also many other solutions from here and didn't manage.

Basically i have folder and then subfolders

(subfolder1) -doc1.docx,doc2.doc
(subfolder2) -doc1.docx,doc2.doc
(subfolder3) -doc1.docx,doc2.doc

Result:
(subfolder1) -doc1.docx,doc2.doc,combined.docx
(subfolder2) -doc1.docx,doc2.doc,combined.docx
(subfolder3) -doc1.docx,doc2.doc,combined.docx

so need to save in the same folder where is this 2 documents.

Since the code in the link works well - and you haven't said what constitutes 'this doesn't work for me' - that's about as good as it gets.

Of course it doesn't. Those documents do (and should) remain unchanged. As clearly stated in the link:

Simply select the folder to process and all documents in that folder will be combined into the currently-active document.
