Hi Raj,

I Googled this question on TECHWR-L, and guess what? Your name came up
on the very first page! Jonathan West replied to *you* about this in
August. So did I. We gave you some very simple steps for successfully
creating large Word documents. Did you follow our advice in creating
your document?

500 pages in Word is no big deal.

Happy Wednesday,
