How can I join several files together to form one large document and how can I manage the new large document?
1. Joining the files
The best way to 'join' the files into one large file is as follows.
a) Open the first file, (Chapter 1)
b) Open Chapter 2 and select all (Control + A) then copy (Control + C.
c) Switch to Chapter 1 and put the cursor at the end.
d) Insert a page break (Control + enter)
e) Paste in Chapter 2 (Control + V)
Repeat steps b) to e) for each chapter.
Save the Concatenated file using a New Name so that you don't overwrite the existing files. (Once you are happy with the new file, you can please yourself whether or not you delete the old files.)
2. Managing the files
To manage your new file, you will need to set up the chapter titles as headings as follows.
a) Select each chapter heading in turn and the select Heading 1 from the style button (this is the left button on the formatting tool bar. It usually has Normal in it.). Do each chapter title in turn.
b) You can the use outline view (View / outline on the menu bar) and the Outlining tool bar to select how much and which part of the document you want to see and / or edit.
The Outlining tool bar can be switched on by selecting View / toolbars / outlining from the menu bar.
Hope this helps. Have a look at the style notes (Vol 3) of the downloadable notes on my web site.

Key in the address and date on the left pressing the enter key ant the end of each line.
Key in the name and address for the person you are writing to and complete the letter.
Select your address and the date by positioning the mouse pointer to the left of the first line. Hold the left mouse button down and drag down to include the date
Press the tab key until your address and the date are on the right were you want them.
Firstly; I'm having trouble setting up a letterhead template on Word. When I used to have Windows 98, I had no problems. XP is supposed to be so much easier in this respect, but somehow, I'm unable to just save the letterhead and I end up saving the whole flipping letter! Where am I going wrong?
Secondly: Am I correct in thinking that most of your Programme 2004 notes relate to W98? 'Cos I really need to get myself up and running faster with XP. Am I looking in the wrong place?

1. Letter Heads. First create your letter head and save it. (If you can, find the letter head in My Documents and right click on it ans select properties. Make it Read Only). Then, when you want to write a letter, open the letter head and write your letter. When you come to save it, it will force you to rename it because you can't over-write a read-only file.
2.. Yes, most of the hand-outs are written for Windows 98 and Office 97. However, most of the info should be good in XP. Where I find it isnt, I am appending an XP bit. If you find something that doesn't work in XP, let me know and I will update it (when time permits).
