Multiple Help Files - Single A-Link Listing

Subject: Multiple Help Files - Single A-Link Listing

I am using WinHelp 4.0 on Windows95. My situation is as follows:

I am using multiple help files whose indices and A-Links are combined
through a master contents file. These help files use a single set of
RTF source files to allow common topics to appear in each help file (and
thus require maintenance of only a single location for each common
topic). The problem is that an A-Link to a topic found in more than one
help file produces multiple listings for the common topic such as:

Topic1 (HelpFileA)
Topic1 (HelpFileB)
Topic1 (HelpFileC)
Topic1 (HelpFileD)

Is there a way to list these only once when invoking the A-Link, or do I
just not combine the A-Links in the master contents file?
