Help ContextID

I have a form with a tab control with 2 pages.  I am unable to access the help contextID from the second page. The help file is defined on the form and the contextID is defined on the tab.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Greetings, beams,

To access the contentID for the second page you must have a control on that page selected, then hit F1.

I do have a control on the second page selected, but when I hit F1 either the first page help section opens or the MSaccess help "ask a question" box opens.??

Greetings, beams,

If you want to get rid of the Office Help Assistents (you know, those animated idiots at the bottom of the screen that never know what you mean and that don't simply quit when you want them to) you can reference to the Office Object Library and set the AssistWithAlerts, AssistWithHelp, and AssistWithWizards properties of the Assistent Object to False.

As for your own help files: you say you defined the contextID on the tab, did you do this for the tab control or for each page seperately? Did you check the existence of the contextID in your help files? If you declared the contextID in your help files, did you map it to a help subject you created? If you did, are you able to access the subject through the help file itself (i.e. are you able to start the subject at all)? Do you have this problem with other subjects/contextIDs? Did you try recompiling the help files? (Ruling out the obvious.)

The problem I was having was because each page had a sub-form and I hadn't refered to the help contextID on the sub-form.  You can still have some points.
