Windows 7: Having multiple Word 2010 documents update with a single change

Having multiple Word 2010 documents update with a single change

Hi everybody!

We have a company organisation chart in a document by itself, but it appears in other documents. Is there a way to link/insert/reference the main document into other documents so changes made in one will automatically update within all?

I know you can insert a document by dragging into into another document, however when you update the original it does not seem linked like how I'd need it.

Regards,

Alex Dunnett

If anyone ever needs to do any document linking this is the feature.
