This is my understanding of the process and I believe the issue is OLE although one of the problem files we couldn't pin down an exact problem. So I think I know what the coarse of action will be - remove all uses of OLE. But its hard to understand why these documents seemed to work under dzBatcher doing exactly the same steps. Its this aspect that may give me trouble in trying to convince people to not do this.

As far as I know, OLE requires not only that the originating application be installed on every machine that will use the file, but that it's the same version of the tool and is installed in a directory of the same name in the same relation to the FrameMaker installation. It's an unreasonably tall order unless you have a *very* methodical (and dictatorial...) IT department, which is why it is so risky to use OLE embedding rather than simple file linking.
