I'm sure questions of this nature have been asked many times, but I am
new to this list so please excuse me for asking again. Please feel
free to respond personally to MNORTON -at- FORMMAKER -dot- COM -dot- Thanks in

I am working on a project in which we will create two manuals for a
Windows 95 version of an OS/2 product. One manual will consist of
approximately 600 pages, the other will consist of approximately 150

Should we use the master documents feature to create indexes and
tables of contents or would we be better off creating those items for
each chapter and then manually combining the results?

* We have Windows 95 and Word 7.0. We also have Word 6.0c available.
* Most of our machines are Pentium 90s with 16mb of RAM. We have one
Pentium 166 with 32mb of RAM available.
* The formatting of the books is simple and there are few
illustrations. There are, however, many screen shots.
* We are only moderately familiar with using Word as a tool for
creating large manuals.
