The .xps file type is a Microsoft Office document. If you have multiple .xps documents, you may find it more efficient to combine and merge all of these documents into one. Authors and writers, for instance, may have each chapter of a book or piece of writing saved as an individual document. Upon completing a book or collection of written pieces, an author may wish to combine all of the separate components of the work into a single document to send to a publisher.
