Hi - I am using RH HTML, version 8. I have a topic that uses an existing Word document as content. The existing Word document contains links to other documents. When I link to the Word document in RH, the links in the Word document do not function. When I view the topic in the generated output (MS HTML Help), there are icons where the other documents are placed (these icons indicate the type of document - another Word document, an Excel doc and such). However, when I click on the icons, no actions occur.
When I open the Word document using Word, the icons appear in Word. When I click the icon the other document opens. I believe these other documents were inserted as objects.
Is there a way to get these links to function?
When I create the topic in RH, I use 'create copy and link'.
Any help would be appreciated!
I don't think that can be done as the link feature is not designed to autolink to other documents just because the first document has links.
Not sure if it would work if you linked both, even if you kept their relative path relationship.

Hi Peter -
Thanks for your quick reply - I thought this might be the case, but just wanted to verify.
