Subject:TOC from several files? From:John Posada <jposada01 -at- YAHOO -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 29 Jul 1999 12:32:21 -0700
I'm at work and all my Word books aren't, so bear with
- I created a 10 file Frame book and life was good.
- I created all kinds of TOCs and Indexes from the
Frame book and life was still good.
- I used mif2rtf to convert the 10 Frame files to rtf,
the open them in Word97 and while life wasn't as good,
it was surprisingly pleasant.
- I've been working with the 10 Word files since the
beginning of this week and I'm getting ready to slit
my throat. (I've already lost 80 pages of tweaked
content when I copied the rtf into the template and
overwrote another file by selecting Save and not Save
As...back to tweaking the rtf...don't ask).
I need to generate a Word TOC file of the book's 10
chapter files. I've been away from Word long enought
to forget exactly how to do it, but not long enough to
know that there is an easy way to do it. (please don't
suggest Master document...I haven't been away THAT
Somebody take pitty on me?
