I inherited a job that is now includes about 200 separate documents. I've had
to create a table of contents for the job manually. (I don't know how to do
this automatically.)

What are the advantages/disadvantages to keeping this job as multiple files
rather than turn it into one big file? Is this something I really should
consider?

MS Word Doc >> Multiple Word docs See "Creating a Table of Contents Spanning Multiple Documents" at
http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=148. One big
file is a lot easier from the standpoint of creating a TOC, but if the
documents are widely diverse in formatting, it may be easier to keep them
separate than to combine them and attempt to retain the formatting.

MS Word Doc >> Multiple Word docs Thank you, Suzanne. It looks like I will let my manual table of contents
stand as it is but I will take the time to work with the instructions in that
article.
