Default Merging documents

Hello,


As no one has answered my question from yesterday, perhaps I could try something different.

I have some 50 Word Documents, all of them need some work doing to them using Find and Replace.

Without having to open each document individually, is there a way I can do this.

My original post from yesterday is still there, relating to whether I can merge all the documents into one, to do my formatting.

Thank you

Go to tools. There should be a "Merge Documents" label. Click and just follow instructions.

Thank you for your response, however I just cannot find a "Tools" menu, let alone a "Merge Document".

You don't have tools menu? Do you have other menus such as File, Edit, etc.?

No, i have Office 2007. I don't want to merge and compare, I just want one document to come after the other. Is that possible?

create a new Word blank document
go to Insert - Text tab - Object - select Text from File
from Insert File Widow select all files you want to insert
now you have all the Word files in a single one

I tried that. With both documents, it just wrote one on top of the other.

Try this:
Open first Word doc.
Insert - Object - Create from File (tab) - Browse
Choose file to insert - OK
After file has inserted, hit Enter a couple of times and repeat.

If you want to end up with a single document, this is the best way. If you'd prefer to keep your documents seperate, you could possibly record a macro for your Find & Replace which you then run for each document.

Cheers
Steve
