How about some filtering by name for the object displays, similiar to the filter in SSMS. Nested even, so you could filter for specific database names and then filter the objects for each database would be really great.

I am testing it out on an application db that has 1200+ views in it. For some reason when doing a CHM for the views by themselves, the CHM project crashes, so I have to manually turn enable/disable each view to see whats causing the problem.

I am assuming at this point it is most likely a limitation on the CHM project because it fails while building the index list (@ 99%) and I have been able to do all the other objects within that db in addition to 7 other databases (into a single file which is very nice)

Any idea on what limits a html help project has on number of files or cross-referenced links?

Hi Keith,
I would try checking out the temporary chm files that are produced.
I think that you may find that in the file SQLDoc.hhp the option Binary TOC is enabled. This does not seem to always work.
eg
Code:

[OPTIONS]
Auto Index=Yes
Binary TOC=Yes
Compatibility=1.1 or later
Compiled file=..\New project.chm
Contents file=SQLDoc.hhc
Default Font=,8,65001
Default Window=Default
Default topic=index.html
Display compile progress=Yes
Error log file=output.log
Full-text search=Yes
Index file=SQLDoc.hhk
Language=0x809 English (United Kingdom)
Title=New project

remove the line Binary TOC and try running the project file directly with HTML Help Workshop.
Hope that works for you. Let me know either way...
Regards
David

Sorry, for the delay in responding. I checked all the previous build outputs and none had binary turned on. Turning it on doesn't help either. (had to try). I was able to get up around 720 views into a chm file, but it still crashes. I do believe its something to do with the views design, but don't know what that is yet.

Keith & I worked out that there was an incorrect entry in the files section of the SQLDoc.HHP file.
By removing this entry all worked fine.
So the section looked like

[FILES]
index.html
SQLDoc.hhp
....


The line in bold was removed and then all worked correctly.
Thanks Keith.
Regards
David
