Excel Help files

  Digital 10:09 13 Nov 2006

When I click on Help in Excel I get a little message saying the Help files need installing but when I click to do that, the floppy drive is accessed although the Office CD is in the CD drive! Any ideas please?

Control Panel, Add or Remove programs, select Microsoft Office, click the Change button, tick Add or Remove features and follow the prompts.

Thanks VoG, I tried that but got the same result, ie. floppy accessed & same "This patch package..." message.

However, I then searched the KB & from that ran a clean-up routine for Office which has helped. Although Excel Help, on first use, still says it needs to load the files & can't, if I close that message & then re-open Help, it works fine!
