    i'm trying to write a help file for my database. i have it set up as a
    command button (click for help) to open a form as popup and modal. this form
    is just one big text box that pulls it's data from a microsoft word file.
    i've tried to do it using a table for the form's recordsoure or as a file all
    by itself but no good. i keep getting an ole error. specifically, "The
    OLE server may not be registered" error message. i have office 2003 pro
    edition and everything is run from the computer. i even ran the procedure
    recommended in kb article 896865 and it didn't work. is there anything else
    i can try or should i just give up and use a memo field type and have to live
    with only one font, no underlines, no bullets and nothing else for the whole
    thing.

    Can you not use what is already built into Access. You can build a custom
    help file that use a "What's this?" button or F1.
    Click on Help and search for Helpfile - Custom Helpfile.
