Doe the word document have a lot of screenshots/graphics? If yes, they are usually the primary culprits. A lot of times the embedded graphics bloat a Word document and when that document comes to Frame, the problem is compounded.
What worked for me was: 1. Removed all the graphics 2. Pasted them into separate gifs 3. Imported by reference It was a horribly time consuming task, but it did solve the problem. The import via filters route might seem to be a time-saver. But, unfortunately, if the document even once complains about corruption, no matter how many things you change, and the corrupt document seems fine, the document will in all probability collapse later. The safest way is the .txt route and a manual adding of the graphics. > On 8/9/06, Aruna Panangipally <apanangipally at yahoo.co.in> wrote: > > Hello all, > > > > We are having trouble while trying to import some Word 2000/2003 documents > > into FrameMaker 7.0.
