You'll get lots of messages warning against Word's Master Document
"feature". I do lots of long manuals without using Master Document;
if you need some help in creating TOC & Index using RD fields,
You may also want to look into a macro suited from Tech-Tav:
"The TECH-TAV macro suite is used world-wide to replace features and
automate work in Word for Windows 6/7/'97. It completely replaces the Master
Document, AutoNumbering, AutoHeadingNumbering, Insert Captions, and Insert
Cross-Reference features. "
I have not used this, but have heard good things about it--
where, I don't remember--it's been a while!--but I kept
the URL just in case:

documents into a Master Document, I can get through maybe three of them
I get "not enough memory" messages on my screen. <snip>
