The help file is a collection of documents that you must buy. MSDN, the online version however is free. msdn.microsoft.com.

MSDN is not installed by default. In my VS6, it is located in 2nd CD.
Hope it helps

In my Visual Studio, it is in 3rd and 4th CDs.
Two CDs for the help file, take quite a lot of disk space (about 5-6 hundreds of MB), but it worths.
It covers not only VB, but also VC++, Ms Office, etc.
