How to move/copy pages from one document to another or new one in Word?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-11-18

It’s easy to move or copy one worksheet from one workbook to another in Excel, however, there seems no easy way to move one page from one Word document to another excepting copying and pasting manually. Here I will introduce a couple of ways to move/copy one or multiple pages from one Word document to another (or new one) quickly.


Move/copy one or multiple adjacent pages from one Word document to another

This method will guide you to move/copy one or multiple pages from one document to another by Object > Text from File feature in Word. Please do as follows:

Note: If the source document contains only one page or you want to move/copy all pages of source document, please start from the Step 3 directly.

1. Open the source document where you will move/copy pages from, select the pages you will move/copy, and click Insert > Bookmark. See screenshot:

2. In the opening Bookmark dialog box, please type a name in the Bookmark name box, and click the Add button. See screenshot:

3. Open the target document you will move/copy pages to, put the cursor where you will place the copied pages, and click Insert > Object > Text from File. See screenshot:

4. Now the Insert File dialog box comes out, please (1) open the folder containing source document, (2) select the source document, and then (3) click the Range button. See screenshot:

Note: If your source document contains one page only or you want to copy all pages of source document, please (1) open the folder containing source document, (2) select the source document, and (3) click Insert button to finish moving.

5. In the popping out Enter Text dialog box, please type the specified bookmark name you added in Step 2, and click the OK button.

6. Click the Insert button in the Insert File dialog box.

So far, the specified pages of the source documents have been moved/copied to the target document already.

Move/copy multiple nonadjacent pages from one Word document to another

Didn't work for me

Greetings. The problem is I'm working on a transcript of a trial that has several pages. I have a program that takes a recording of the interaction and converts it to a MS doc. My problem is that if I go in and make an edit (adding names or correcting minor errors in the transcript) suddenly a blank page (or more depending on the number of edits) shows up in the document. And if I try to delete that added sometimes blank page by using backspace, it doesn't delete the page, it starts deleting text?

I have read the information you have provided but wow that seems more complicated that other "work-arounds" that I've been using. My main problem is that I don't get it why I can't go in and add the word "Plaintiff" or whatever or correct a typscript error without the dam thing adding a blank page that I can't delete? Ugh.
