Ordered binder document sections having different file formats stored within a binder file. The binder file maintains the order of binder document sections in an index structure. The binder document sections can be removed from the binder file and stored as external files, while their order in the binder document is retained. The index structure is updated when additional binder document sections are added to the binder file. Also, the index structure may be altered so as to change the order of binder document sections in the binder document, without altering the memory locations in which the binder document sections are stored.
