In Word, an inserted object cannot span more than one page. A
workaround is to scan each page into a separate tiff file, and
then insert each page as a separate object.

You can't. Word is limited to showing any object as only one page.

Use a graphics editor to split the tiff into separate files, one per
page, and insert them separately into Word.

Ted,
I know it's been over a year, but I have found a "work around" that has
allowed me to insert multiple pages of a tif file without ahving to re-scan
or to somehow break the multi-page tif into single pages.

With the MS document imaging software open and showing the recalcitrant tif,
I select print and then select One Note. In the meantime, I have previously
set up a blank page in One Note. Click print. The entire multi-page tif will
appear on that open One Note page.

Then, hover over the border of the page that you want to transfer to Word so
that you ahve the yellow four-headed arrow and select the page. Hit cntrol-C
from the keyboard or right click and select "copy." Go to the Word document
where you want the page and paste it.

Voila. Okay, so you do have to repeat the process for each page, but if you
can't re-scan the original or don't have the software to break the pages
apart, it does work.
