Hello:
How can I force one Word Document to obtain the same properties as the Word Document I'm inserting it into. Without knowing this, any Word document I insert that has tables or tabs looks completely screwy once I insert it into an existing Word document.

I so appreciate the help!

Thanks a lot whoever you are, kind person.

When I write proposals, I'm often inserting information given to me by other individuals. This info is usually in Word, but with a million different paragraph specifications, tabs, margins, etc. I know how to go to Page Set up and change the margins and tabs, but there are usually many other little items, like condensed font, etc, that I don't find out about until after I see it inserted into the new file. So, wondering if there is a way you can tell the inserted file to adopt the same properties as the original. '

Also wondering if I can set up Word to always use Palatino and 11 pt font, rather than the Times settings on my computer.

Thanks!
