    Is there a way to carry over the Headers and Footers of the Inserted Document when you use the Insert | File command in Word 2003? I thought that Word used to do this automatically but I cannot seem to find any info.

    Here are the steps I'm using:
    1. Open a Word document that contains information in the Headers and Footers
    2. In the document, move the cursor to where you would like to insert the file
    3. Select Insert | Break | Next Page Section Break
    4. Hit ENTER
    5. Select Insert | Break | Next Page Section Break
    6. Go to your blank section's Header, turn off Link to Previous
    7. Go to your blank section's Footer, turn off Link to Previous
    8. With the cursor in the blank section, select Insert | File
    9. Choose a file with it's own unique Headers and Footers and click OK
    10. The text of the file is inserted into your document, but the Headers and Footers are not.

    You have to insert a section break at the end of the document to be inserted. That way, the section break (containing the header/footer setup) will come in with the document.
