    Rel Table – Option not available to "Create a row for each task topic in a map"

    Using XMetaL 5.5

    In XML Map view, I am trying to insert a rel table in a helpmap by selecting Table > Insert Relationship Table.  The option to “Create a row for each task topic in a map” is grayed out.  I have been able to use this option successfully in other helpmaps.

    Thanks for your help.

    The option will be greyed out if you do not have any task topics in your ditamap. Check to see if any topic references have the “type” attribute set to “task”.

    Thanks.  The map includes many task topics (also concept and reference topics).

    Check to see that the type attribute for at least one of your elements is set to “task”:

    Thank you.  Topics within the map were missing the assoicated topic type.  I added these in and successfully inserted the rel table.  The option was no longer grayed out.
