1)Create a book and add files to it. These files can be .fm, .xml, .mif, or even .book files.
2)Organize files into folders or groups if necessary.
3)Set up volume, chapter, page, and paragraph numbering.
4)Add generated files, such as a TOC, list of tables or images, or an index.
5)Update the book. This step populates a new TOC and index.
6)Fix broken links and troubleshoot numbering and cross references.
7)After fixing any errors, generate and update the book again.
note: FrameMaker book file references the files included in the book. A file can therefore be included in multiple books.
