Help w Help (customizrd - HelpContextID

Someone wrote a custom MS Help file for my excel/VB application.  How do I incorporate this into my Application?

I looked at the HelpContextID property but am still confused.  I guess I could just execute the help with a shell command but then I need to know where it is. (?)  Can I attach it to the workbook like a customized toolbar?

I also have a CNT file that goes w the help file that should link to a certain place in the help file when it's respective help button is pushed from a dialog box.

first few lines from CNT file:

:Base wizard.hlp
1 Starting the Wizard=Starting_the_Wizard
1 Creating a File=CreatingaFileUsingtheWizard
... etc ...

Thanks - BB

If you go to the object browser and select your module  (for example) in the project window and then right click, you can specify help file name/location and context ID details.

Furthermore, if you find your functions/procedures, you can right click on them and specify descriptions and Help Context IDs.
