As a possible workaround, have you explored Word's Master Document

The trouble is, the Master Document is a time bomb. I understand some
people have used it without trouble, but that's not the general case. It's
very easy to separate a book into separate files for chapters, then put them
together using RD fields for Table of Contents and Index. Master Document
is a disaster waiting to happen, in which whole sections can disappear,
graphics and all, without a trace. It's EVIL. Don't go there.
