Yes, changing the names of the generated files is the bit of magic you
need. There's a good reason why FrameMaker calls the command 
Generate/Update. If you invoke the command and FrameMaker finds 
files with the expected names, it updates them; if it fails to find
with the expected names it generates new, unformatted ones. 

My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Subject: TOC & IX files don't exist?

FM 7.1 (unstructured) Win XP0

I've seen this before and I'm half way through fixing it (the hard way).
I had 
to put this job aside until tonight, so I've had a chance to rethink

I have a book that I haven't worked on for a while. I changed the name
of the 
book at some point. So now the name of the book doesn't match the name
of its 
generated files. For example if the name used to be, the TOC
was and the index was  But I changed the name to  Now 
when I open the book I can see and open all and, but
seem to 
be "disconnected."  By this, I mean that when I do a book operation like
or "open next document in book," Frame can't find the file.  I get an
error like 
"can't find" 

I started re-creating the files this morning (doing an Add TOC), but
this seems 
like a lot of uneccessary work when I've got what looks like the right
right in front of me.  I'm wondering if there's a way of tricking Frame
recognizing the file again. Is it just a matter of matching the name of
* file with the name in the book?  That'd be great. If that's not
Frame looks for I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what it does look

Thanks in advance.
