Attaching documents together to make one large document

Reply Wed 6 Nov, 2013 08:32 pm
I have written three WORD documents, each with its own endnotes. I would like to combine them into a single large document - with each of the smaller documents keeping its own endnotes. I understand that one problem is that when the documents are combined, the endnotes become continuous. Thus, if the first document has 50 citations, the endnotes for the next successive document will not start at 1 again (I want each set of endnotes to start at 1) -- the footnotes for the second document will start at 51. Is there some method for keeping each document separate and intact, even if they are attached?

What you it sounds like you wanted was to create chapters. if you have a editor that allows building of chapters, they'd retain and indentity..and endnotes, footnotes would not ripple etc. also page numbers would number pp 1-1, 1-2, etc..then pp 2-1, 2-2, etc. Understansd what I'm saying?

MS Word did not have the functionality of becoming a book writing editor to my knowledge...but admittedly it's not something I work with extensively any more or do much of since being Technical (book writer) ending in 2001. there are book editing programs, but MS Word is not one or wasn't one in 2001.

{edit: OK...disregard what I said and read this following linking post from MS. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290953 and

@Peter Frouman,
I think I will be using your citation in the near future. Thanks

Are there any "book editing" programs out there (although I realize you said "disregard"). I read all three of your citations, and believe I will be using the first two

I used to used FrameMaker..around the time it was bought by Adobe. However, this was an expensive program (paid for by company) that controlled a lot of items you needed for writing a technical manual - way overkill for most people's simple book. There are several book editing/publishing programs out there. Just Google them and you'll see a bunch.
