    VBA Help Isn't (Office 2K)

    If I open Word or Excel, then press <Alt> <F11> to go to the VBA IDE, and press <F1> for help, then the help screen comes up, but for the Answer Wizard tab and the Index tab, the mouse pointer is a Horizontal Resize (left-right arrow) anywhere on the tabbed-page and I cannot click buttons or enter text. I think that this is the first time that I've used VBA help since installing Office 2K. Help works fine for Windows and also Word/Excel. Just VBA help is weird. TIA --Sam

    One suggestion I found is:
    - Open the Task Manager.
    - Activate the Processes tab.
    - Select MSOHelp.exe.
    - Click End Proces...
    - Wait until the process has been killed.
    - Open the help again.

    I remember this problem. It was some kind of "crash" in the help system that would be fixed after restarting Windows. Hopefully the suggestion by Hans will be a more efficient route to the same end.

    Finally got back to that machine. Neither suggestion worked. When I get time, I'll do a reinstall/repair and post back with the results. --Sam
