Simulating a Large Document from Individual Files

Another technique for assembling large documents is to print the smaller documents separately. For large documents that would overload memory if they were inserted or even linked into one large master document, this technique is preferable.

When you use this technique, you must set the starting numbers for pages, paragraphs, footnotes, and so on for each individual file to maintain sequential numbering across the larger document. You must also use {RD} (Referenced Document) field codes for creating tables of contents and indexes. The table of contents and index are created in a separate document, using {RD} field codes, one field code for each of the individual files that make up the document. You cannot use cross-references across files when you work with individual files, although you can use the new hyperlink feature to point the reader to references in other files.
