    I create html help files and use a button to call up the correct page:

    Private Sub cmdHelp_Click()
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler

    Dim CurrDir As String
    CurrDir = left(DLookup("[Value]", "UserSettings", "[Code] = 'CurrentDatabaseFile' "), 3)
    CurrDir = CurrDir & "Baker\BAHelp\cr\receipts.html"
    If Dir(CurrDir) <> "" Then
    'Open the hyperlink
    cmdHelp.HyperlinkAddress = CurrDir
    Else
    MsgBox "Help has not been installed.", 48, "Not Available"
    End If
    DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Web", 2

    Exit Sub
    ErrHandler:
    MsgBox "Help has not been installed.", 16, "Not Installed"
    End Sub
