If I'm understanding your situation correctly, you have a document that uses \input (or \include) to incorporate multiple input files, and you want to typeset the main file regardless of which sub-document you have open in the editor. The easiest way to accomplish this is to add a comment at the start of each of the sub-documents that tells texworks which main or "root" file should be typeset. See http://code.google.com/p/texworks/wiki/TipsAndTricks#Defining_a_root_file.
