Does anyone have any experience using the Master Document and Sub-Document
feature in Word XP (2002) Professional with 150-page documents? Does it
work? Do you need to use Master Docs or would an ordinary single Word doc
Also, what is the best method to import (embed) Excel spreadsheets into
Word and keep the Word file small? Assuming that you do not need to link
or update the Excel data.
The 150-page document includes 100 pages of text and 50 pages of Excel
spreadsheets that need to be embeded into the Word doc.
From my experience with previous Word versions and after checking the
techwr-l Archives, Master Docs were unstable and just did not work
