    MasterDocument (2000)

    I have a large (>100 Page) document which is basically three parts joined together so I have a master document with just a few bits of text and three subdocuments. It's flaky - sometimes I open the master and the subs have vanished. I know where they are so I can work on them and reinsert but why do they leave the Master? It seems to happen mostly when I have altered a subdocument having opened it through the master and/or if I change from outline to print layout.

    Hi Sue,

    Mainly because the Master Doc "feature" is broken.

    For a full explanation of the hows and whys take a look at this article <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/General/WhyMasterDocsCorrupt.htm>Why
    Master Documents corrupt</A>

    Cheers!
