I have a large project where I need to have 10 people editing different portions of what will eventually become the same document. Though my preference for something like this might be using LaTeX the editors here aren't knowledgeable on the subject...so I'm stuck in Microsoft Word 2003 or 2007.
Right now we're stuck using a very kludgey macro-driven/outline-based document, where a macro points to a sub-document. Other macros then build the whole document. Unfortunately, when we need to change something in the outline this macro driven system seems to be causing substantial pain.
Is there a way to allow multiple users to edit different portions of the same document concurrently? If not, is there a way to split up the document and reassemble it later using built-in functionality?
