When you have an entire Word document that you'd like to insert into a new document, most people's instinct is to open and select everything and perform a copy/paste. Instead, follow these steps. Start by clicking where you want the content to go, then go up to the Insert tab and on the far right of the image is a button for Object. Use the dropdown arrow and select, Text from File. Navigate to the file that you need. I'll go to my Exercise Files and then double-click on Chapter 11.
We want to insert the titlepage, so I'll double-click on it. My entire file has now been inserted into the document. To keep this content back on the next page, I'll press Ctrl+Enter to insert a manual page break. Look how fast that was. As you can see, you can include contents from one file inside another with a minimum of steps by inserting the entire file at once, instead of opening it, selecting the contents, copying it, switching documents, locating your cursor, pasting, and then closing the original file.
