Hello everyone,

I'm trying to generate printed documentation (a Word file) in RoboHelp. (Under Single Source Layouts, I right click on "Printed Documentation" and select "Generate.")

I've never had any problems with this before. Now, I get this error message as RoboHelp attempts to generate the Word doc:

"$StylePrepFile.htm caused a serious error the last time it was opened. Would you like to continue opening it?"

RoboHelp does generate a Word doc, but it is mostly empty. There's a title page, TOC page, and Index page, but no topic text.

Any ideas what is going on? Thanks.
