Alternative to Microsoft Binder for Office 2007

I have a user who was using Microsoft Binder with Office 2000. He has been upgraded to Office 2007, and Binder is not available. What can I use as a work-around?

Use zip files in place of MS Binder; also consider PDFCreator

by jcarroll In reply to Alternative to Microsoft ...

Dear bds,

The Wikipedia article on MS Binder recommends using compressed (zip) files:

"If users wish to include multiple OLE object-based files in one file, the universally supported ZIP format is a suitable alternative. Most modern operating systems include support for working with this type of file, and it can contain practically any other type of file. Microsoft Windows has included built-in support for creating and editing ZIP files since Windows XP." (Source:

Another option is to to combine the files into a PDF document with the free (open source) PDFCreator: . If you would like instructions on how to combine multiple documents into a single PDF file, simply ask.

Try Microsoft OneNote

OneNote has some of the functionality of Binder, in that you can embed multiple file formats in tabs. It isn't free with Office 2007, but it's worth the cost, IMO.
