    Unanswered: Documentation

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for documenting my application like the documentation of any programe or software we see, e.g: the help of Access.
    Is there any tool to help editing documentation like Access help.

    Thanks...

    You're better off with homebrew...

    I've found that writing help documentation using chm files tends to be more involved then writing the application in the first place.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    I mean write the whole thing in access just like you would any other application. Create a table for topics, details, examples etc etc

    chm is the format that "true" help files are written in. I've personally found writing help documenation in this format to be maddening, your milage may vary.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
