Hi everybody,

Image two cases:

(1) If I would want to compile a partial TOC just for a section, I would create a bookmark for this entire section and then use a \b switch after the TOC field, adding the name of this bookmark.

(2) If I would want to compile a TOC derived from the content of document A in document B, I would add a TOC field in document B, and directly afterwards add an RD field with the filename of document A.

Both solutions work perfectly.

(3) Now I want to have a partial TOC of a section of document A in document B. I add a bookmark for the respective section in document A. Then I add a TOC field in document B using a \b switch with the name of the bookmark in document A. And then finally I add an RD field right under the TOC field in document B.

{ TOC \b Chapter1 }
{ RD "writing-template.docx" \f }

However, in this case, it tells my that the bookmark has not been defined. It looks like, Word is somehow not capable of passing on bookmarks using the RD command? Is that correct?

Any idea on how to fix this? Any workaround to create partial TOCs across documents?
