Help Compiler Problems
There are many bugs with Word 97 RTF that MS have only fixed with the Windows 95 version of the Windows Help Compiler 4.02 (HCRTF and HCW)
There is a program included in HTML help authoring tools/Web that can fix the RTF created by Word 97 but if this still does not work then it indicates that you have you got embedded pictures in your document?
You MUST remove them as the Word 97 RTF is very buggy with embedded pictures.

Are your using long paths and filenames? HCP and FIXRTF are DOS programs and so do not understand long paths and filenames. Keep these to the normal DOS conventions and you should be OK.
