DO NOT...
I repeat,
DO NOT use Word's Master Document "feature." It is an abomination that
has never worked properly.

Instead, go ahead and break your file into multiple document files,
saving them all in the same directory. (Duh!) Make sure your pagination
is set up correctly, e.g., if Doc 1 ends on page 100, Doc 2 should not
begin on page 90.

Create a new document. Insert an Index field. Insert an RD field, and
include the filename (with the path) of the files you want to include,
in the correct order.
It should look like this in the doucment:
{INDEX \c "3" \h "A"} [Your index formatting may vary.]
{RD "C:\\Doc projects\\doc1.doc"}
{RD "D:\\Doc projects\\doc2.doc"}
....etc....

Update the fields, and as the French say, "Viola!" (or something like
that).
