    Hi. I have "Help" as a Menu option in my custom menus; as most applications
    do. How do I associate F1 in the menu to bring up my custom help files; it
    still brings up the MS help. I have it working on the forms but not in the
    custom menu. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the help!

    You need to create a macro called AutoKeys
    The name is important, it must be called AutoKeys.
    Inside this macro, have 1 line with {F1} as the macro name and then
    RunCode as the action. Create your own function called something like
    Open_Help() and use this function name in your macro.
    Create this function in a module and open up your own help file.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
