During your workflow you may have spent significant time on Word Documents and would like to incorporate them in to your Confluence Space.  Confluence has the ability to insert Word documents as links and even import Microsoft Word documents as a new page.  During the import of the document, much of the spacing and formatting will not be applied in favor of the default Confluence structure.  It may require additional editing once the file is imported.
