Long documents in Word

Some of the final year PhD students complain that they can't get the software to do what they want. When you have a document of 80-100,000 words, Word isn't too good at handling it. I know you need to do things like have a main file that pulls in the other files as chapters, but there are headings, page numbers, contents and citations and references compatible with Endnote to consider, as well as how the appendices get numbered. Here is a helpful web site for all of Word. It includes a section on numbering appendices here.

I hope I can sort this all out in 18 months time.
