Troubleshooting

Subdocument Naming Strategies

I created headings for subdocuments within a master document and then clicked the Create Subdocument button, but the file names I ended up with don't match the headings I entered.

The most likely explanation is that one or more of your headings included a punctuation mark. When Word creates subdocuments, it uses the entire text of the heading but stops at the first punctuation mark it encounters. Thus, if you have a heading titled Management's Response, the subdocument will be saved using the filename Management. In addition, if any of your subheadings are duplicates, Word tacks a number onto the end of the second and subsequent filenames to distinguish it from the first such heading. To avoid this problem in the future, avoid using any punctuation in a heading that marks the beginning of a subdocument (after the subdocument file is created, you can change the heading text without changing the filename). To rename an existing subdocument, double-click the Subdocument icon to open the subdocument in its own editing window; then use the File, Save As command.
