Create a book in Word

Guest

I would like to create a book in Word that consists of multiple Word files.
This book would contain a cover page, TOC, List of Examples/Figures, followed
by the individual Word documents and an interactive index. If anyone is
familiar with the book feature in Framemaker or Indesign, this is what I'd
like to be able to do in Word. I reviewed the master and subdocument online
help and tested this, but it didn't quite fit the bill. Is this something I
can do with Word?

You can do it with a master document and subdocuments but you will also need
to add section breaks to separate your table of contents and index and help
you control the page numbering.

I feel sorry for you, Lisa. I'm also a Frame user who's stuck with Word now.
It's just not a book-building tool, and it's not software that works FOR you.
You'll spend most of your time trying to hack solutions to make things "look"
like you want, only to open your file the next day and find that Word has
changed something. The answer: "Oh, it's working as designed."
