I want to run my help such that the contents page appears first.  I know application.helpcommand can run macros, but i dont know what the parameter value should be. Similiarly with winhelp(**, **, COMMANDthingy, <what is the value here to run the contents tab>)
There must be an easier way to do this.
Someone must know.
Help me to help the world.
On as moderate as i want to know SOON.
Cheers all you lovely people

Heapster,

It's Winhelp(**,**,HELP_CONTENTS) to run the contents : )

Good luck with your project!

That didnt work for me, but im grading your answer anyway.  
I ended up using Winexec to execute winhelp with a path to the help file, and a parameter of 1. Thanks anyway. Heap-I.
