[archive] Online Help

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 12 April 2004]

I have a manual for my AcuGt application written in Word. I would like to convert that to online Help screens called from within the application modules. Any suggestions on a good Help product to use in conjunction with AcuCobol?

A good help compiler to make help files is the Microsoft's Help Workshop.
You have to save your Word document to rtf format, make a few changes (insert page brakes and footnotes to separate the topics) and compile. Then link the help file to your program.
Take a look at acucorp's sample program (helpdemo) and the zip file in the thread which is named "help automation".
