G'day everyone

I have an MS Word file with embedded MS Word files. In other words, in the Word file, there are icons that open further Word files when you double-click them. I can see the names of these embedded files in the window bar quite clearly, but when I press F12 to save it, I'm prompted for a new name, and I can't select the existing name anywhere. Does anyone know of a trick to allow me to copy the file's original name so that I can save it under that name? Otherwise I have to carefully type in the name manually each time.

I'm using Word 2003.
