Hmm, this looks fairly simple (I think). If your "Using Advanced Search" text is already a topic (which I imagine it is), then you should be able to type "Using Advanced Search", select the text, and then either right-click or select the hyperlink icon off the toolbar (I forget which - I haven't got RH open now) and browse to the other topic that contains this content. Maybe I'm not getting what you're trying to achieve.
Actually "Using Advanced Search" is a sub-topic for the Topic (Using Search). If Using Advanced Search was the topic, I could create a hyperlink but that is not the case. :-(
I don't know of any difference between a topic & a sub-topic except their positioning in a ToC - what makes them different?
Concerning bookmarks, this works in Robohelp but when you transfer the HTML files to a production server, the end user cannot see
where bookmarks are placed. Currently Robohelp is not linked to the system we are providing help; therefore, we are publishing the html files on a server until the system are able to talk to each other.
What you would need to do using Jennifer's approach would be to insert a list as she has shown at the top of the page and link explicitly to the bookmark farther down the page. Sure, the users won't see the bookmarks. You would need to repeat the text just before the content.
RoboHelp 8 introduces a feature you may wish to use. It is called a "Mini-TOC Placeholder". So you would create these sections and assign a Heading Level to the first line of each section. Then insert the Mini-TOC at the top of the page. This will do a similar thing by presenting links pointing to content farther down the page. Functionally, it will look and behave identically to what Jennifer proposed, but will be much simpler to create because you don't have to type the text used for the links and you don't have to create the bookmarks and you don't have to establish the links. The placeholder handles all that for you.
