You can use Word's Referenced Document field to create a TOC for
separate documents. I've never tried it in a manual, but it sounds

Word's online help has a wee bit of info about the RD field. Cathy
Clarke and Ron Brown wrote an article that explains how to use the field
(Word can do it, Communicator, Summer 1998: Vol. 6, No. 2) It's at

I'm not sure where the RD field should go in the document. After reading
Word's online help and the Communicator article, I thought the field
should go right after the TOC field. To test the placement, I created
two documents. Doc1 contained the TOC and chapters 1 and 2, and Doc2
contained chapters 3 and 4. I set chapter 3's page numbering to start at
page 4. I tried putting the RD field after the TOC field in Doc1, but
when Word generated the TOC, it put the entries for chapters 3 and 4
before chapters 1 and 2, even though they started on later pages. So I
moved the RD field to the end of chapter 2 in Doc1, and Word generated a
proper TOC, with chapters 3 and 4 after chapters 1 and 2. I don't know
if this is the official way to do it, but it seemed to work.
