Serge, Did your customer give you a structured application with the SGML file? (The structured application consists of at least an EDD and application definition. It can also include Read/Write rules, and a template, and maybe even some other things.) If so, you'll need to use that. If not, you'll need to create one.

This SGML file is an export from a database. What do I need to "parse" this SGML file to Framemaker? What I've tried is following: I start Framemaker in Structured Mode. When I "open" the SGML file, I just get a plain text with all the SGML codes in it. When I use the "Parse Structured Document" function, I'm asked which Structured Application I want to use (DocBook, DocBook 2.1, XDocBook and XHTML). I choose one of them, and then I get an error "Could not find external document type <name>". What do I need to open or parse the SGML file in a way that I get a decent document with all SGML codes 'interpreted'? Many thanks in advance.
