I have just moved to a different office, and the current version of Office here is 97. I have just noticed that Clippy works fine when I am in an office document. However, when I go to the VBA editor and click on the help icon in the tool bar, clippy opens briefly but then I it immediately goes to the standard Help Index/Contents window. If I close that, clippy is on the screen, but if I click on him I only get buttons for Tips, Options, and Close. There is no way to type in a question. Its been a long time since I used Office 97. Is this normal for 97, or is there something I need to do to enable Clippy in the VBE.
