I used to make help files for Windows 3.1 with this Help File Compiler. Things have moved on a bit. If you click here I think you will find all the tools that you need. There is one freeware utility for compiling help files from ASCII text.

I used to use Rich Text Files plus an ascii text configuration file.

Thanks Pesala thouh i couldnt actually find a download link from that page. expertec, I am downloading the VB help authoring tool. I think that will do the job.

Does anybody have any links to FREE, FULLY usuable Help making tools? I.e the link from expertec has a lite version which will only make 30 Topics.

Many Thanks
