Dear all

This is my first message to the group so I hope it is okay.

I have started using FrameMaker again after a break of over a year (now
version 8). I am using conditional text heavily as we have three sets
of product literature to maintain.

There are a few files which are specific to only one or other of the the
products. Should I

a) Stick to having one book file and add/delete the files as
necessary depending on which product I am dealing with

b) Have a separate book file for each of the product sets, with
just the relevant files for that set contained in each?

I tend towards the latter solution myself but I am just getting the hang
again of FrameMaker and I am not sure it's the correct approach.

Please help!
