    .chm not compiling

    gambacher
      I am trying to compile a rather lengthy document with a large number of imported MS Word 2003 files. The Output View gives me the following warning and does not complete the compile:

      "HHC4001: Warning:
      The following alias line does not contain an '=' character separating the topic IDs: .

      FOSS_Spiral_1_Master_Document.hhk

      Fatal Error: Unexpected error from Microsoft HTML compiler.
      Finished compiling HTMLHELP in 23 sec(s)"

      Please help me. I'm on a tight deadline.

      Below is the full output view:
