Russ -

Okay, my "Preview Book" function may be resolved. I did 2 things. The 1st thing I did was delete the following item from FTM which appeared in my book [after upgrading from Version 16 to Version 2011].

"This book was imported from an older Family Tree Maker file. There may be reports and charts that are missing. Because of differences between the old and new formats, book items may not include the same formatting or in some cases, the same data. The book import is intended to give you a template from which to recreate your pre-existing book. This text item was added during import and should be deleted because it was not part of the book."

The 2nd thing I did was go through the book, item by item, and re-insert the images which had been lost during the transfer process and I tweaked some of the minor formatting issues.

I then hit "Book Preview" and after a good 2 minutes of waiting I actually got a Book Preview. The book I was working on was abt. 230 pages, so I am assuming that longer books take a longer amount of time to produce a preview.

I don't know which thing helped the most, the 1st thing I did or the 2nd.

Thanks for your help !
