Help vs Online Help

I find it highly annoying that MS Access tries to go online when I want
to look at the help files. Is there a way to configure it so it just
looks at my local helpfiles when I hit F1?

Hi, John.

In Access 2003, open the Help menu -> Customer Feedback Options. Select the
"Online Content" category and uncheck the "Search online content when
connected" option (you may also want to uncheck the "Show template help"
option, too), then select the "OK" button to save your selection.

However, if you are overwhelmed by the number or types of answers you
receive, you can limit the amount or type of content returned by doing one
of the following:

Limit your search scope
a.. To return offline Help topics only, click Offline Help in the Search
list in the Search Results task pane.
b.. To return online Help topics and Web articles only, click Assistance
in the Search list in the Search Results task pane.
The search scope will always return to the default (Microsoft Office Online
if you have an Internet connection) when you start your Office program. To
change the default to search offline Help topics, do the following:

Show offline content
To set your preferences for using Microsoft Office Online content, do the

1.. On the Help menu, click Microsoft <Program Name> Help to display the
<Program Name> Help task pane.
2.. Under See also in the task pane, click Online Content Settings.
3.. In the Service Options dialog box, do one or more of the following:
a.. To show offline Help topics first when searching, clear the Search
online content when connected check box.
b.. To show offline Help topics only and to turn off all links to
Microsoft Office Online, clear the Show content and links from Microsoft
Office Online check box.
Note These settings apply to all of your Office programs, however they
will not take effect in any open Office program until you restart the

I am doing a project for school that involves creating help files for a html authoring tool. If you could help me with answers to some questions it would really help. 1. What tasks do you expect an html authoring tool to help you accomplish? 2. What do you expect from online help for a html authoring tool? 3. What audience do you think a freeware html authoring tool is directed towards?

Just installed 2003 and the help file sucks because it tries to connect to Microsoft Online Help which takes too long. When I run Access and I'm not connected to the internet, it seems to connect to the locally stored help files. How can I turn off the online help and just access the locally stored help files?
