WORD document to Kindle Periodical Format

Hi,

I am not if there is a (easy) solution to what I am looking for. I have a 100 page word document. In this document, there are 80 articles, with different titles.

What I am trying to achieve is to create a Kindle Periodical-like format file out of this word document, such that, when sent to my Kindle, I will have all the titles displayed on the right under Articles, and when I click the titles, I get the entire article. And it's ok if there is just one item on the left under Sections.

Is this something doable?

Thanks

@yinsyuedu - I'm not sure what a Kindle Periodical is, but off the top of my head I would try this in Word 2007/10/13. Format the Titles as Headings - eg ctrl/alt/1 will set a paragraph as Heading 1. Save as DOCX

Then in calibre convert the DOCX to AZW3 using default conversions settings, and have looksee at it on your Kindle.

Thank you for your reply and suggestion. It worked!
(Sorry I forgot to thank you earlier - but better late than never, right?)
