    MS HTML Help (A2K SR1)

    I'm having troubles making help files I've created work correctly in Access 2K. File opens to the correct topic and only my contents are being displayed but the index isn't correct. It's using the Access Help index. The raw .chm file opens correctly alone. Any help would be appreciated. Got It correct now . The only thing now is the Access help window opens behind mine with no data.

    Works great when using the F1 Key only. When using "What's This" i've prevented the access window from showing somehow, but a "msohelp.exe" is being opened hidden. No affect to users, but that application being opened prevents me from compiling the help file. I must go into task manager and end the application manually. Not so much a big deal. Tried to apply the same logic in the reference you provided but not sure "What's This" has a macro name. I would have thought it was the equivelent of pressing F1, guess not.

    You can control whether a form has a What's This button using the WhatsThisButton property of the form. If you lookup WhatsThisButton Property in the VBE help, you'll see that the help you get will depend on your settings and your context IDs.
