Welcome to the forum
Take backups of everything in site. Then open the index file (HHK) of the mega project and the single projects. You should be able to see how to add the content of the single projects into the mega project. If you are not sure, get one of your developers to sit with you. I am sure they will see what needs to be done.
Post back if you cannot resolve it.
you could 'carefully' copy the source project .hhk file content from each of the two source project to the new .hhk file. Open up the files in notepad and take a bit of time to digest the format of these files. You just need to copy the appropriate entries between the following tags....
<!-- Sitemap 1.0 -->
<object type="text/site properties">
<param name="SiteType" value="index">
Obviously backup before you start :-)
Afternoon Peter, apologies for treading on yer toes.
How do I open the .hkk file. My computer does not have any software that supports that type of file. When opening the file I get the default what do you want to use to do?
Use web service to find the appropriate program .
Select program from a list.
You will need to use notepad.
You should be given the option to select a programme from a list, Notepad (a basic text editor) will be in the list.
Please remember to take backups first!
Thank yo so much. You just saved me about two days worth of work.
I copied the biggest of the three files and pasted into the mega.hkk file and it seemed to work.
Now I am going to play with the merging all three into one file and see if creates duplicate index keywork entries.
Thank you so much,
Glad you are sorted.
I recently combined a project of over 40 .chm and managed to sort out the index using this method. It does save bags of time but it is prone to human error. Best to take backups at each stage (e.g. if the first combo works, take a back up and then move onto the next).
You will get duplicate entries, but you can delete them at a later stage via the RH project tab.
Good luck and have a great weekend
