Topics do not display after I compile the help file--the
pages are blank. When I am creating the topics, I see and can edit
the text associated with the topics. When I go to view the help
file after compiling it, I get the following message on the page
"Internet Explorer was unable to link to the Web page you
requested. The page might be temporarily unavailable.
"Please try the following:

Where oh where might this help file be? Please don't reply
with "well, it's on our network drive". If you do, I'll have to
congratulate you on being about the 2,000,000 th user to ask the
question since Microsoft changed the playing field about a whole
year ago. If this is the case,
this link and read on.
Also, if you are working on your project while keeping the
project files on a network drive, move them locally immediately.
This forum is littered with all sorts of issues people have
reported and moving files OFF the network and ONTO the hard drive
was "the fix".
If this is the case, you might come back with "Well, our IT
folks say this is the way it has to be done, as our hard drives
aren't backed up and the LAN is". And you know what? They have a
most excellent and valid point. So how to work around it? You place
a COPY of the project on the LAN at the end of each workday and
allow them to back up the copy.
