importing items

Hi I am busy now with creating a little scene it’s a table wioth some soldiers stuff on it. I made al objects (knife,thompson, keys, etc.) and now I’m setting up the scene. But when I click append in the file menu and select the .blend file of my item iç have to choose from a list (object,world,lamp,mesh) but I can’t import the completed object. The thopmson with the gunmetal-metal partys and the woodcolor wooden parts when I import it I just see it in the ‘‘basic-blender’’ colour. Now how can I import my completed objects WITH textures already on it?

It should. When you first click the .blend, you are given a list of choices. Choose from the “Object” subtree.

Is it still causing a problem?
