I had a large document that was having formatting issues, so I split it into 2 files. Chapters 1-7 are in the main doc with the TOC and a second doc has chapters 8-12.

I have the following:

{TOC \O "1-3" \H \Z \U}
{RD \f "MCDPS Training Manual Part2.docx"}

The TOC is created and has entries from both documents, however its showing the entries from Chapter 8-11 first and then Chapter 1-7. I've read that it should list them based on page numbers, but its not. Chapter 8 starts at page 121, yet its listing it first.

How can I get it to show the TOC from the main doc first and then the RD?

Page numbering is included from the ordering as it appears in the Word document (top down), the same goes for RD fields I can only assume.

Therefore you need to put the RD field at the end of the document so it will appear after the entries in the main document body.
