    Hello,

    I'm new to this and word 2007, so please be patient with me.

    i need a bit of help. I've got approx 200 word documents (template.rtf documents) that are unique to our system and i have to back them up (in case they are changed/amended or deleted by users, and also so that we can look at these and decide where we can condense them i.e. similar letters into one document etc).
    Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

    Is there a way of automatically inserting the name of document into the actual document (the footer maybe) without having to open them up?

    thanks :confused:

    Save the Word document with a meaningful name. Then it will make sense when you back it up.

    thanks, i've already backed them up and put them all in a folder however, i would like to put the file name on all the documents but don't want to have to open each one to insert their name as there are approx 200 documents. Is there a way to insert a file name automatically without having to open each document?
