Thought I'd pass on the wisdom of those that helped me out.
For anyone else thinking about using RD fields to build a
TOC from multiple docs, they are a powerful feature.

With reference to yesterdays post, this is my understanding:

* long folder & filenames with spaces upset the TOC

* move sub-documents to a folder with a DOS-like
shortname and rename docs to a shortname solves
the problem

* leave names alone and enclose the path in quotes
also solves the problem

* watch out for opening documents from the last used
list. The filename might contain spaces you don't see.

* space before final } doesn't seem important

Fields with syntax:
{ RD c:\\test\\chapter1.doc}
{ RD "c:\\my documents\\docs\\chapter 1 test.doc" }
both worked fine.

And thanks again to the helpers.
Steve, or
