Missing Help topics in Help

P: n/a
I was trying to look up Access Help for the GetSetting, SaveSetting
commands to implement in my DB code

when i press F1, up pops the Microsoft Access Help, if i click Index
and type in Get, all that comes up in the box below is :

GetChunk
GetHiddenAttribute
GetOption
The Help Menu in Access looks like this

Microsoft Access Help F1
Show the Office Assistant
What's this?
Office on the Web
Detect and Repair
About Microsoft Access
I had a look in the Access VB Help too , but that was the same too?

Am i missing something, i checked that Access Help was fully installed
using Add/Remove Programs

On the Contents Tab do you have the topic "Microsoft Access and Visual Basic
for Applications Reference"?
At least in the A97 version this is where those topics would be listed. If
it's not there, I don't think you installed it. It is a separate install
option during Office setup.

It looks like much of the help that was available in A97 went away in
A2002, I'm not sure about A2000 since we jumped right to A2002. I
copied all the help files from my A97 CD to a folder and use this when
I need help. It's not integrated but at least the info is there.
