You're missing the whole point of using conditions: to create _multiple_outputs_ from a _single_source_. You should have exactly _one_ file for each chapter, or why bother with all the combining and conditionalizing? To get your different outputs, you just change the condition settings, hiding B for output A and vice versa. If you're seeing colored borders around table cells, it's because you're not only showing that condition, you're also showing condition indicators. Those are useful when editing, but must be turned off when you're ready to print/PDF. HTH! Richard ------ Richard G.
