I am getting the following warning with the content of a personal book and can't find where it is.

[Info] Starting build for PBB:ab6c2b1d92a04db985bdfa856dfdf361
[Info] Converting
[Info] Converting C:\Users\2-in1\Documents\CCBCD\NT377 Revelation\Teacher Resources\NT377 Revelation Teaching Notes.docx
[Info] Compiling
[Warning] Unknown data type in use: topic+topics
[Info] Discovering
[Info] Complete

I realize this is minor and it don't break the process, but I would love to find it and correct it.

Thanks

STEP 0: Sorry that no-one answered.  A way that sometimes works is to save the source file to some other name like TEST000.docx.

STEP 1: Then cut that file (TEST000.docx) in half by deleting the last half and save it as TEST001.docx. 

STEP 2: Then reload that file (TEST000.docx) in half by deleting the first half and save it as TEST002.docx. 

STEP 3: Build TEST001.docx as PBB DUMMY01.  Is the error there? then the error is in the first half of the file.

STEP 4: Build TEST002.docx as PBB DUMMY01.  Is the error there? then the error is in the last half of the file.  [Yes, same book name] 

STEP 5: Copy the file with the error in it to TEST000.docx. Continue at STEP 1 and continue till the file is very small and hopefully you can see the error. Or small enough so you can retype the rest of the file.  That retyped section of the original file, hopefully, will not error. 

What if the error is in both TEST001.docx and TEST002,docx? 

Copy TEST001.docx to TEST000.docx (the first half the original file)

Copy TEST002.docx to TEST003.docx (the last half the original file)

Try steps 1 through 4 and see if both halves of the original first half of the file still have the error.

Try copy TEST003.docx  to TEST000.docx

Try steps 1 through 4 and see if both halves of the original last half of the file still have the error.

If error appears in all 4 quarters of the original file and as you were willing to accept the error then quit looking for it. 

What you are doing here is to keep cutting the file in half until you narrow the file down to where, hopefully, you can see the error.

If the file is only a few lines long try retyping it.   [May have had a non visible character in it]

Lloyd- I learned a long time ago to setup my books by chapters- each chapter is a different file, then add them to the PBB build one at a time, if an error occurs it is easy to locate and fix. After this process I compile the chapter files into a single file source and rebuild the book.

Yes I know it's tedious, but I have managed to have 98% of my PBB's linked to Logos resources, and they are as close to being a Logos product as we can build.
