I have searched this forum and the internet and still can not find the answer to this question so i figured i would ask here. I am trying to copy an object from one file and put it in another file, how do i do this? thanks in advance

Open your ‘other’ file and choose File -> Append (or hit SHIFT-F1). You can browse your .blend files like directories; just drill down until you find your object. If you’re finding it difficult to locate it, go into your original file and rename the object to something meaningful.

This also works with lamps, textures etc.
