    In help, I typed 'combine documents' and chose the 'Combine subdocuments' help topic. It says to choose Master Document under the View toolbar option. I then placed my cursor at the end of the document, and selected 'Insert Subdocument' wherein the 'Insert Subdocument' dialogue box opened with my files and folders to choose from. I chose a random file, and it inserted it at the end of my document. May be a little time consuming, but not as much as copy > paste or something like that.

    I just tried to select more than one file at a time to no avail. But this would seem to be your solution for now.

    Why can't you just put all the word docs in a folder and mail them?

    Or, if you are using a web-based interface which lets you pick only files, why not just zip 'em up and send the zip file?

    Unless your web guy wants them all in the same doc so he only has to open one file...that's just lazy, I think.

    Or did I misunderstand ... ?

    i ended up just zip them and emailing them that way. i wanted to combine them into one large master document. i tried following those directions under master document and just gave up. ugh... thanks for the help anyway boys...
