This is a bug in RoboHELP 7.0. Upgrading to RoboHELP 2000 will fix the

One thing you'll want to keep in mind, though, is that you don't want to
convert your WinHelp project to HTML Help first. You will want to go
directly from WinHelp to WebHelp in this case, because of another RoboHELP
limitation: Converting .CHMs with master .HHCs to WebHelp doesn't work,
even in RH2K.

Hello, all. I am mostly a lurker, but now I have a question. We have a
help project (RH Office 7, word 97) that uses a master.cnt file. We've
heretofore been compiling it to WinHelp2K, with good results. We're now
trying to make WebHelp from it, but it doesn't take into account the
master.cnt when we compile. We don't get any error messages, but neither
do we get a consolidated TOC that has all the documents in it. What are
we doing wrong?

Thanking all in advance,
