Ugh, what a terribly worded error message. It sounds like [document name.fm] contains multiple flows with the same flow tag, A. FM doesn't know which one to compare to the (hopefully) single flow A in the other doc. If changing the name of a flow to B didn't help, it means one of two things (depending on what "didn't help" means, exactly): either there are still multiple flows named A or you changed the name of the flow you wanted to compare. Or both. In general, unless you're doing a newsletter or something like that, you should only have one flow in the body pages of your document. The fact that you have multiple flows without being aware of it suggests there may be something wrong, like disconnected pages. You may need to do some detective work on your doc. See the Page Layout chapter/topic in the manual/help and/or look up text flows, text frames, and autoconnect. Richard Richard G.
