Dear Janet: You don't say whether you are using a Mac or PC or other.
I recall increasing file sizes being a problem when I used a Mac
several Mac Systems ago (we now have System 7). The answer was to
do a Save As, and overwrite the file.

I thought someone here might know the answer to this. I am creating
a document in Word and happened to notice that the Word file gets
grows and shrinks in a manner unrelated to the contents of the file.
Over the past 10 edits, the newly edited file has been the following
sequence of approximate sizes 53,000; 110,000; 125,000; 91,000;
54,000;
58,000; 99,000; 162,000; 113,000; 123,000. Meanwhile, the actually
document has grown steadily from 12 pages to about 30 pages. The
document is quite simple--no mass of graphics. It has a TOC, a half
a dozen reference fields, and a few borders around paragraphs.

Does anyone know why the file gets larger and smaller this way? Does
Word do this all the time and I just never noticed before? I am
wondering if my machine is having some sort of problem. Or if the
software needs some adjustment of some sort.
