Dear Mary,

I have had the same problem with both Word and WordPerfect. The best
I have been able to determine, is that the Master Document page
styles and number styles differ from your 'real' manual. In between
each sub-document, Word automatically creates one to two blank lines
in the Master document, usually in the style, Normal. You can best
see this in Master Document View mode. What I did, was remove those
extra pages when I was completely done with the writing/layout.
Then, re-index and re-TOC. This took care of it for me.

Good Luck!
