HELP, HELP in using VB5 Enterprise Edition.
Is there a way to include a function key in VB that will pull up the Win 95/98 Find dialog within your VB application to search for certain text in a "Word" document.  This would be the same as the F-3 key works in Outlook 97/98.

Thanks for you anticipated help.
