    I think I know the answer to this one already but here's the situation: Can Microsoft Word do tabbed browsing similar to Microsoft Excel's tabs for different worksheets? My friend and I are spitballing ideas for scripts back and forth and I'd like to keep all of our notes/research in one Word file. Each film can get its own tab and that way I can search through multiple sheets if I had to.

    Anything I can do?

    Thanks. :)

    For a simple, if inelegant solution, use the 'document map'.

    To set it up:
    - Turn on document map (View -> Document Map)
    - Create a "tab" by starting a new paragraph and setting it to a style of 'Heading 1' (off of the Formatting toolbar). When you do this you should see the paragraph 'label'/'tab' in the document map window.
    - Set the pragraph to start on a new page. (This will give each of you a fresh page to start with.)

    If you click on the heading in the doc map you'll jump to that page.
