Check out Jean Webbers book "Taming Microsoft Word" available from her web
site at

It's quite good and well worth the very reasonable price to download ($8
US). She has a chapter on working with long documents.

As Keith Cronin pointed out, Woody Leonhard's Word 97 Annoyances is
indispensable, if you can still find a copy. I'm now in a job where I have
to use Word and I'm searching for a discount copy myself.

Also check out the MVP FAQ site and some of the other links mentioned in my
article "Eseential Resources for Word Users" on my web site at
