As a companion question to my other recent post re RH6 to RH8 TOC, specifically:
If I have a RH6 project which I open in RH8, how do I display the TOC of the RH6 project without creating a brand new one so I can view and edit it?
Apologies if I have misunderstood your question but just try double clicking on the TOC file that has been updated from RH6 when you opened the project in RH8. You'll find it in the Project Set-up pod.
