Having trouble implementing Context Sensitive Help in an application I am developing in MS Access 2007
Have been able to create and complile the '.chm' file and can view the file and see the topics.  
But - I am not able to implement this in MS Acces 2007.  Willing to use VBA.  I am seeking something
that actually works, not just discussion of things that do not work.  

Can anyone help?  Thanks.

With the advent of Access 2007 and the Ribbon, XML, Win 7....
It is becoming increasingly difficult to find specif info for this topic
(Like the limited support for Office 97-2003 style "Commandbars" in Office 2007 and newer)

Have you seen this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/210166
(See the Access 2007 section)

Have you looked into using one of the many help apps available?
http://www.adobe.com/products/robohelp.html

What is your extent of need for this?
You may be able to get by with using the "ToolTipText" property of most controls.
...or some custom "MouseOver" coding

Read the recommended article.  The solution described in the article did not solve the problem for me.  Have abandoned this approach and moved on to other issues.
