I would caution you to avoid using Master Docs - at all costs. The problem
here is that each of the documents will be open at the same time, and being the
memory hog that Word is, you will quickly reach the number and/or size of
documents it will allow you to have open at one time.

Why not separate into chapters within a manual, with each chapter being a
separate document. You can use chapter numbering (i.e. 4-15) to avoid having
to deal with sequential page numbering concerns.

I believe that would work better.
