How to Combine 2 Scanned Documents Into 1 in Word


Microsoft Word offers a blank canvas for typing reports, letters, instructions and other documents, but when you've already created the materials, don't recreate the wheel. Take advantage of Word's insertion option to combine scanned documents into a Word file. Bring in old paperwork, images and other files and merge them into a single Word document to keep them together and avoid readers having to shuffle through multiple files.

  • Open Microsoft Word. If combining the scanned documents into an existing Word file, click the "File" tab, click "Open," browse to the document and double-click it. Otherwise, Word opens a new, blank document to the screen.

  • Click the "Insert" tab at the top of the screen. Click the "Object" menu on the right side of the ribbon below the tab. Click "Object" from the drop-down menu.

  • Click the "Create from File" tab. Click "Browse," and navigate to the location of the first scanned document. Double-click the file name. Click the "OK" button, which closes the "Object" window and inserts the first scanned document.

  • Press the "Enter" key twice to add a line of space between the first document and where the next one will go or press the "Ctrl" and "Enter" keys together to create a page break, for a new page for the second scanned document.

  • Repeat the "Insert" and "Object" process to add the second scanned document to the Word file.
