Default Master documents in Word 2007

Hi Herb,

I'm working on a 300 page, 15 chapter book about our local history, and
found your book at Border's. Incredible! you spent at least, I think,
2-1/2 pages describing the pitfalls of this function.

Forewarned is forearmed.

Thanks for the advice.


p.s. I'm gonna buy the book.

The Master Document feature is still there, and still as likely as ever
to result in corrupted documents.

Nonetheless... if you aren't risk averse, go into Outline view (by
clicking the outline view icon on the status bar or in the ribbon's View
tab). The Outlining tab will appear to the left of the Home tab, and the
Master Document controls are shown in the Master Document section. When
you click Show Document, the master document section will expand.

Word 2003 (and prior I believe) had a "master document" function that
very useful for putting multiple document files into one big document
you could use pagination, table of contents, etc. EXTREMELY useful for
employee manuals, policy procedure manuals, etc. I don't seem to be
to work with my master documents now that I upgraded to Word 2007. What
do I
use now?
