Word 97 document copies over network

By ShawnS ·
I have 3 word docs that need to be accessable in one document on another network PC. So I have pated all the onfo from the 3 into one doc. The origionals will stay where they are and may be updated at anytime in the future but that makes the copies on the other PC outdated. How do I make the new doc update from the origionals?

The new document can contain hyperlinks to the other 3 documents. Just click insert|hyperlink and browse to your document. Whenever someone opens the new document and clicks the hyperlink they will see the original document.

Even easier, use "Paste Link" in the Paste Special option and paste the original documents into the consolidated file. Your users will be able to update the three originals separately, and their changes will go back to the consolidated document "automatically" or as prompted.

or
Use the Insert>Field Includetext field.
Both of these will provide the updated versions of the component Docs
