"The selected package file requires an InDesign document that cannot be found."

Hello,

I often get this error message "The selected packaged file requires an InDesign document that cannot be found.  How do you want to continue?" when opening in InDesign CS5.5

 

My options are "Browse to locate this document." and "Save the contents of the package to disk."

 

When I selected "Browse to locate this document." and I located the appropriate InDesign file, it prompts me to browse for the file again.  Its a never ended cycle.

 

I'm not sure how to solve this problem.  I'm not familiar with the procedure if I "save the contents of the package to disk."  Can someone help me out with this?

 

Thanks!

    Have you moved or renamed the InDesign file in any way after sending the InCopy package?

    Well, there’s your answer. Pretty simple…don’t do that.

     

     

     

    But if the damage has been done, you can change the extension of the idap file to zip and unzip the contents. You’ll find all the updated InCopy stories there.

     

     

     

    Overwrite the ones on your harddrive and you should be good to go.

    Yes, right on top of the ICLM files that are already there.

     

     

     

    You may have some manual updating to do as far as the links go.
