nightmare locked 2008 master document

So, I'm locked out of my 414 page novel created in 2008 version of Word for Mac. I can view my master document in Word 2011 but none of my editing maneuvers seem to work. I tried saving each chapter as a separate, new document and creating a new master document, but at that point I started getting a message that neither the old nor the new master documents could be expanded, because all of the individual files were "missing." They are all still there and readable, but tantalizingly out of reach of editing or formatting control.
