fabian I'm not having a good day as the compiler say's I've  
either got an empty file, which I haven't because its got
both the source file (the ebook files I'm writing in word
2000 and saved as the source file) and an index.htm file
(the first page in my word 2000 file I saved as an
index.htm file).
I'm sure its there in front of my eye's but I can't grasp what's said to me. Tam was very helpful, taking the time to explainto me. Perhap's if someone could explain it with a children's storyline and pictures!
Its annoying to think that Ive managed to negotiate the internet these last three years but get stumpped with a little thing like this.    
                             Thanks for any help

EBookCompiler Go to the Files tab in the compiler, and click Refresh

Do you see index.htm or index.html in the list of files?

I think you'll find you don't (if the compiler is complained of no index file)

Probably you will either see index.html.doc (or something like that) in which case the problem is when you saved in Word, you didn't set the save options correctly - see Word section in Getting Started section in Help

or you might not see any variation of index in the list, in which case you either didn't save index in the right folder from Word, or you picked the wrong folder in the compiler when doing Edit Scan Folder

Hope this helps

fabian Thanks alot Sunil, Sorted it all out by printing out " Creating your source files using MS word 2000" and going through it methodically from start to finish. Wasn't that hard in the end.
