Calling Help.chm from Access

P: n/a
Hi,
I am using Access 2003 with WinXP/sp#2.
I have built a Help file using MS HTML Help Workshop that includes a TOC
as well as an Index file. My problem is how do I call this from Access.
I do not want to set up Context Sensitive Help I want to open an intact
Help file similar to a Windows Help File.

I have tried everything I know, obviously not much, but all I can
generate is Context Sensitive Help w/o TOC or and Index.

I was thinking that if I can call IE from within Access I might be able
to get it to work but I can't figure that out either.

I can't believe that somebody hasn't run into this problem before.

Maybe my approach is wrong? Any help would be appreciated...

TIA
Tim

Tim did you get anywhere with this - I am interested also. I have a html
help file, but it is not quite doing the right thing yet. If I run it
externally, it works fine, but if I call it from within an Access mde, it
doesn't work properly.
