I have a master helpset and 4 sub helpsets. I am doing a dynamic merge. The TOC is fine. All the 4 sub helpsets got merged as expected. But, there is a problem with the search. I get results from the master helpset and the first sub helpset. I do not get any results from the remaining 3. i am using JavaHelp 2.0_05. Did anyone come across such a problem?

Thanks
Bharat

ahh..found the reason for this problem. All the sub-helpsets were generating the db search files in the directory called "JavaHelpSearch" and during merge they are getting overwritten by the next sub-helpset. As a result the search is giving results from only one sub-helpset. I am setting the dbnames to something unique and the problem goes away.
