    Didn't know where to post this, but thought someone might have the answer here.

    I have three word documents that I would like to combine into one. Two of them were previously converted PDF files.

    I open up the original word file, and then click "Insert, file". When i click on the file I (a word doc), it imports it and stuff is everywhere, formatting is hosed, etc. If I open up the second file on its own, it shows correctly.

    I am using word for mac 2011. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Why don't you open all documents and copy & paste between them?

    if the pdf formatting gets messed up when doing this you can also combine the 3 pdf's into one using preview. but I would try what simsalad said first as it will be the easier of the two
