See image above, I don't know if anyone can help me with this. I am generating MS HTML Help. The page referred to used to be a very long one, with 10 bookmarks, all having a hyperlinks to them at the top of the page. I've broken the content down into separate pages, and the bookmarks are obsolete. In fact I've removed the old file from the project, as well as (I thought) having removed the TOC references. It's possible that these old bookmarks are linked somewhere else but I can't find them if that's the case. Can someone help me identify what file or where I find this bogus link?

Found it. Previous user error. Someone has copied sections of the TOC, at some point in the past, and stuffed them "under the carpet" so to speak, in an out of the way location. Whilst I had addressed the TOC items that were where they ought to be, the ones under the carpet were the ones generating the error.

 

Thank you for endeavouring to help. I shall spend the rest of the day establishing how much else of this rubbish I've just found can be deleted. Probably all of it, but you can't just get rid, can you? 😄

The URL references are in the table of contents (TOC). Have deleted the old toc entries and added your new ones?

Yes I think so. Which physical file are these links going to be in? Is it the hhc? I've done text searches for the offending GUID-like part of the error but with no success.

Which version of RH are you using? You should be able to find and fix the errors within RH and not touch xml files.

Good luck! Figuring out why a previous author did something is tough unless they left good notes. 🙂
