    Help Files (Excel 97)

    Hi all, does anyone know how to create a help file? I would like to make a help file for a program that I am working on.

    Thanks, Darryl.

    Excel 97 uses the winhelp type of help files (*.hlp). It is basically an RTF file with a special type of footnotes that is run through a compiler that converts it to .hlp.

    Microsoft used to provide a winhelp compiler, but I don't know if it is still available - it has switched to HTML help (*.chm) several years ago. If you do a Google search for winhelp authoring or help authoring you'll find lots of utilities.
