 Calling a helpfile (again)

I'm sorry David, i was afraid i was not clear enough.
When pushing the F1 button you get the "MAIN opening help screen".
I want this emulated without pressing F1 (i want to have a menu entry).
In programming form i only get topics,index etc. wich i don't need.


> Here's one way:

> Set the App object's HelpFile property and set a form's HelpContextID
> property to the number of a topic in the help file. Now when the user
> presses F1 the help file will be opened at that topic. If you want a
> topic about a specific control set the control's HelpContextID and
> this will be used in preference to the HelpContextID of the form.
