use plain delphi commands like :

const

  DATANOTFOUND = 714;

procedure TForm1.BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);

begin
  Application.HelpFile := 'DATA.HLP';
  Application.HelpContext(DATANOTFOUND);
end;

Regards, Zif.

I'd like answer from ZifNab. I can only add one:

Application.HelpJump('Subject')  //  if you created context file
