    When I press F1 while in Excel 2007 (or, for that matter, any other Office app), all I get is a pop-up stating "There are no help topics available that match your request". However, I haven't made any request (that I know of). Any idea what is going on with the Help function and how to fix it?
    I just noticed that the title bar in the pop-up says "Microsoft Office Help Viewer. Must that be installed along with Office 2007?

    Hi Chuck,

    When you installed Office, did you install the Help files? You can check the setup via a 'change' installation, using 'Add/Remove Programs' or 'Program and Features' in the Windows Control Panel.

    I reinstalled Office and that cured the problem.
