Anita - it may depend on how you are storing your book directories, but I have not fully got my head round how you say you are organizing the files. Afaik FrameMaker can only resolve pathname indirection to the next higher level of directory. If this sounds like gibberish, save one of your files as MIF and then look in the MIF for a reference to an imported file and you will see what I mean. It may all rather depend on what you mean by 'each book is saved in a separate directory' - how are the directories related to each other? If other factors allow it, it may be that you can get round this problem by saving all the files for both books in the same directory. The book files themselves will allow you to keep the required separations. It's worth a try as an experiment, at any rate. -- Steve
