Attach a document or file to your notes

In Microsoft Office OneNote 2007, you can keep a copy of any document or file as part of your notes by attaching it to your notebook page. Double-clicking the attachment icon will open the document or file in its intended program (for example, a Word document attachment will open in Microsoft Office Word if it is installed on your computer).

  1. In OneNote, on the Insert menu, click Files.

  2. In the Choose a file or a set of files to insert dialog box, navigate to the location of the file that you want to insert, and then click to select it. (To select multiple files, hold down the CTRL key while you click additional files.)

  3. Click Insert. A copy of each file that you selected is inserted on the current page and shown as an icon that you can double-click to open or view the document or file.

Note: OneNote does not maintain a link to the source file. If the source file is updated later, those changes will not appear in the copy you attached.
