You will *always* get a page break where a document spans two files. The only way around that would be to combine the two source files into a single book component using a text inset for the second part (or inserting both parts btext inset into an otherwise empty container file). If you're getting a blank page at the file break, you need to check the pagination properties of both files. The file for the first part needs to be set to "Delete empty pages", and the file for the second part needs to be set to "Next Available". Note that this last setting *must* be made from the book file. If you go to the pagination properties in the file itself, you will not find "Next available" as an option because it does not make any sense for an individual document; it only makes sense in the context of a multi-file book. -Fred Ridder _________________________________________________________________ Shed those extra pounds with MSN and The Biggest Loser! http://biggestloser.msn.com/
