Hi all,

I have a quick question for all you Word gurus. I'm using Word 2002, and I have a
file approaching 400 pages and just over 147,000 words in length. Needless to say,
it opens kinda slowly. Not a lot of graphics or tables, but I do have a few. Mostly,
the file is text.

Does anyone have any experience on file sizes in Word. Where would you cut off a
file and go to a second one? Also, if you have any hints on how to link the files
together for maintenance, since Word lacks a reliable 'book' feature, ala
FrameMaker, I would be interested.

I'll post a summary if there is interest in one.
