Default Merge Multiple Documents with Numbered Lists

I want to merge 8 distinct documents into 1 master document. Each
distinct document has numbered requirements in it, and I need to make
sure I maintain the integrity of the numbered lists.

When I do an insert Text, I lose my numbers. When I do insert object,
i get the first page, but that's it.

Surely there is some way around this?

There are ways, but they will take some work. To give you suggestions,
we need to know more about your project

1. Version of Word?

2. Are you using styles? (Do you know how to use styles?)

3. If you are, are you linking the numbering to styles?

4. Have you set up a single template for all the documents (including
the Master)?

You may want to take a look at this article to get some background on
possible approaches for retaining numbering restarts
