Book does not recognize TOC

Tags: #toc #framemaker_10

I am working with translated files. After the files returned from translation, the book no longer recognizes the TOC. I need to fix this error without re-creating the TOC.

 

In the book structure, I noticed two things about the TOC file:

1. Its icon is orange.

2. A path appears along with the filename: "..\FM 10\.fm"

 

I verified the TOC exists in the same location as the other book files. I can also open the TOC outside of the book, with no errors.

 

I am using FrameMaker 10 on Windows 7. Thanks!

    Usual hack:

     

    1. Rename the legacy TOC file temporarily.
    2. Have FM create a new one.
    3. Delete it (the new one) with the system file manager (not from FM).
    4. Rename the old one to the same name as the new one.
