    Hi,

    I may be being stupid (inasmuch as it may already have the feature) but looking at Excel it occurs to me that Microsoft Word ought to have a similar feature to it and allow for tabbed documents. I suppose I'm thinking of something like a book or working on a project involving multiple, similar documents so that the author (in this case me) can navigate easily to various parts of the project.

    As far as I can tell Word 2007 doesn't have this functionality however it is entirely possible that it might be in some other part of the office 2007 suite.

    Kyu

    Word doesn't have it, but you can, of course, open multiple documents at once and arrange them on the screen the way you want.

    You can also open multiple windows on a single document so that you can view different parts of the document at the same time.

    And if you use heading styles consistently, you can create a table of contents with hyperlinks that lets you navigate to the headings easily, and/or use Document Map view (see How Document Map works in Microsoft Word)

    There are word processors with a tabbed interface, such as Jarte, but they "merely" display different documents in the tabs.

    You may want to try Microsoft One Note 2007, it is the most underrated underused office product. It's a fantastic information depository.

    I think it's part of the cut-down version of Office 2007 I have at home (it's not on my portable at work) so I'll give it a try there.

    Thanks
