You probably already know that Word allows you to insert a file into your document. You may not know, however, that you can insert a portion of a file, if desired. This is done in the following manner:

  1. Position the insertion point where you want the document inserted.
  2. Choose File from the Insert menu. Word displays the Insert File dialog box.
  3. Specify a filename for the document you want inserted.
  4. If you are using Word 2000 or later, click the Range button. Word displays the Set Range dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  5. Figure 1. The Set Range dialog box.

  6. In the Range box, indicate a bookmark name assigned to the text you want inserted. This must be an existing bookmark name in the document you are inserting.
  7. Click on OK.
