    Long Document (2007)

    I have a book, about 300 +- pages an would like to know if it would be easier to put into one document or leave broken up into mini docs. Also any tips on building chapters.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Word can handle such long documents, but repaginating and saving autorecover information might make response sluggish, so it's probably better to keep each chapter in a separate document.

    You can create a document with RD fields to create an overall index and table of contents. And if you wish, you can create a document with INCLUDETEXT fields to combine all documents into one, so that you can print it in one go.

    See the Word help, or the following links:
    Field codes: RD (Referenced Document) field
    Field codes: IncludeText field

    You can insert a field in a document by selecting Insert | Field... or by pressing Ctrl+F9 to create field braces { }, typing the field code (as described in the above links), then pressing F9 to update the field and hide the field code.
