    How do I do my own Help file? (Access 2000)

    I'm wondering if anyone knows how I might go about creating a help file for my database. I've automated a button that brings up a Word document on the help subject I want, but I need to make it so that it can not be edited. Is there any way to do this? Is there another way to go about this help file?

    You could, of course, make the Word document read-only, but that is not a real protection. You could create a PDF file from it, which is less easy to edit. There are free tools to create PDF files, such as PDF995.

    You can also create a Windows Help file, such as used in Office 97 and before, or an HTML help file, such as used in Office 2000 and up. There are many tools for either, a Google search for create windows help or create html help or help authoring should turn up lots of hits.
