Thank you everyone for all your suggestions. This is GREAT to have all
this help. Suggestions for #1 included writing a macro, using insert file,
and easiest of all to let Windows do it for me (thank you Randy Udavcak).
Essentially, here is what I did.

1. Drag all the files out of Microsoft Binder into a folder. (I used MS
Binder earlier to print all the files as one document at one time.)

2. Create a new blank Word document.

3. With that new document open, select all the documents in the order I
want them and drag them into the new Word document. I had to break this
into groups of about 20 files in order to not overload memory.

As for checking the spelling in a PDF file, the only thing that works so
far is to copy all the text in the PDF and paste it into Word. I then
check the spelling in Word and correct the PDF based on what I find wrong.
If anyone has a simpler way to do this, please let me know. Also, I use
PitStop to edit the PDF text as editing in Exchange sometimes destroys the

Thanks again.

I would love to find two utilities. Does anyone know of a utility that
will allow me to

1) Merge over one hundred separate MS Word (Word97) files into one big
file? The author of this document created a separate file for each page of
the manual. Or, does anyone know why I should not combine all the separate
files into one file? Seems to me it would be far easier to work on if it
were one file (searches, replaces, etc.).

2) Check the spelling in a PDF file? I do not have the source file.

Thank you for your help.
