subtemplates in word RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to create documents and 'insert subtemplates in them'.  For instance I create a letter and want to attach an invoice to it or a sales proposition.  These subtemplates are alle created already as dotx (word 2010) templates.  Is there a way I can dynamically add another template to an existing document?  Sometimes multiple documents should be added to this single document.

  • Word has no "attachment" concept. You can insert a document into another document (Insert/Object/Text from File) so that it becomes an integral part of the document or you can embed a document into another document as an OLE object (Insert/Object/Object). In this case the user would need to double-click the embedded document in order to see all of it.
