    Help IDs (2002)

    Saw a very useful post about Excel Help IDs, how to identify them and how to throw up help topics programmatically. Is there a similar list of Help IDs for Word? Can't find it anywhere.

    If there is one available on the web, it's well hidden. I can't find any mention of it either.

    You used to be able to get a help file and help context ID for old-style *.hlp help files from any control:
    <pre> Dim strShell As String
    Dim myControl As CommandBarControl
    Set myControl = CommandBars("Menu Bar").Controls("&File").Controls("&New...")
    With myControl
    strShell = "winhlp32.exe -N " & .HelpContextID & " " & .HelpFile
    End With
    Shell strShell
    </pre>

    But that usually was a short description, not more than is available anyway from the control's .DescriptionText
    And it doesn't seem to work any more in Word2003.
