Help Workshop - Warning Message

P: n/a
When compiling my help file, I get the following message:

'HC3108: Warning: topic #65 of C:\Program Files\DPC Manager
10\help\dpchelp.rtf :
The title footnote ($) does not appear before any text.'

I cannot reconcile the topic number (#65) with the topics in the rtf.
I've tried counting down the topics from the top in the rtf, but the
resultant topic doesn't reveal any problem.
I've also tried counting the mapped topic ID's.

Any solutions?

Have you accidentally inserted a topic without any text (ie there is a
topic called "")?

Bob,

'HC3108: Warning: topic #65 of C:\Program Files\DPC Manager
10\help\dpchelp.rtf :

The topic should be on page 65 of the document, unless you have one or
more topics that span several pages. You could also try using the
report feature in Help Workshop (File > Report) to generate a report
of the topic titles in the help file. This should help you to
determine where the problem footnote occurs.

As you're probably aware, message HC3108 means that the title footnote
does not precede the first paragraph of the topic. You must move the
footnote to the beginning of the topic, and then recompile.

Thanks Pete and Craig.
I had a blank line at the top of the page before the Title.
I did'nt know about the report though. Thanks Pete.
