The RD field always worked for me, too.

As I recall, we set up a "book file" that looked something like this:

Title page
------------------section break------------------
Copyright page
------------------section break------------------
...any other front matter...
------------------section break------------------
{ TOC \o }
------------------section break------------------
{ RD preface.doc }
------------------section break------------------
{ RD chap01.doc }
------------------section break------------------
{ RD chap02.doc }
------------------section break------------------
...any other chapters and appendices...
------------------section break------------------
{ INDEX \c 2 \h "A" }

Putting the section breaks in the "book file" (rather than the individual chapter files) gave us the greatest success over page number continuity, header and footer content, and other section-related features.
