Chapter 8. Working with Word and Excel Files > Importing Office Documents

Importing Office Documents

When you're working with larger documents, you'll often want to include the entire document on a web page, in which case copy and paste is not practical. In these situations, you'll want to import your Word or Excel document into Contribute. When you import a document, it is inserted at your current cursor position.

NOTE

Although text in a Word document and on the web page might look the same, underneath the hood, they are completely different. Microsoft Word files are stored in a proprietary format, whereas web pages are written in HTML. When you import a document (or copy and paste, for that matter), Contribute automatically translates the text from one format into the other. Consequently, there is a limit to the size of the file that can be imported into Contribute. Any files that create more than 300KB of HTML—which roughly translates to about 25 Word pages—are automatically linked instead of inserted.
