    Re: connecting two documents (Word 2000)

    Can you explain this in more detail? Do you want to type text into one document first, and then simply automate the copy and paste process, or... do you need to match up edits between two documents, or... do you want the second document to have a cross reference that displays a range of text out of the first?

    I hope you are not using the "Master document" feature in Word - it is flaky.

    You can create a link in "master" document to a "subdocument" as follows:
    Select Insert/File...
    Browse to the subdocument
    Check the "Link to file" checkbox (the caption may be slightly different in English)
    Click OK

    You'll need to update the link manually (F9).

    For part of a document you can use:

    Select text in the subdocument.
    Copy it to the clipboard
    In the master document, select Edit/Paste Special...
    Click Paste as Link and click OK

    By default, updating of this kind of link will be automatic.
