Help on Help

Hi:

I'm trying to create a Help system for a vc++ (vc.net 2003)
dialog-based application.  I started by creating a separate single
document project where I included "Context-sensitive Help" and copied
the help files (MyApp.hpj, afxcore.rtf, afxprint.rtf, bullet.bmp, and
MyApp.cnt)  over to my application. 

I now have a Help Topics box that I can bring up with Contents, Index
and Find tabs.  I can change the books in the Contents tab by
modifying the MyApp.cnt file and I can change the text that is pointed
to by finding the original text in the afxcore.rtf file and changing
it there.

At this point I'm at a loss as to how to modify the entries that show
up in the Index tab or how to tie the Index entries to the help text.

I'd also like to know how the pointers from the MyApp.cnt file to the
text in the afxcore.rtf file work.  I can see what the pointer to a
particular section in the afxcore.rtf file is by putting the cursor
near its Page Break, but I don't know how to go about creating a new
pointer or how to change an existing one.

Can anyone tell me how to work with the Index entries and the Content
pointers or where I can find this information in the literature?  I
can't find this information anywhere.

TIA,
Brad McMillan

You need to examine the topics in the 'Microsoft Help Workshop'. On my
computer this is hcw.exe. If in doubt try to open  the .hpj file by
double clicking it.

CRM Customization Help!!!
There are a few things in CRM that we would like to customize. I noticed that you can create and modify views however where can you modify the views for activities and notes? Can you add a start time and end time to a case and automatically calculate the duration? Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated. If there are examples or cusomization documents we could look at that would also be great. I figured out how to modify some of the hidden views that are not customizable through the interface. I was able to add the File Name column to the note view. However can you make the ...

Help needed with date function
Hi all I am making a 3 page spread sheet which will have a column with different dates. The idea is that something needs to be done at that particular date and I need to program excel to warn me when the date is approaching.

I am using the dd/mm/yy format (Europe) and I want to have another sheet which, amongst other data, will have a space / cell reserved for this warning. I hope I have been clear e...

Formula Help #40
I want to use excel to subtract two times and then divide a specified cell by the sum and return the value. Example: I get to point A @ 7:00am depart @ 9:00am and deliver 864 boxes. How many boxes per hour did I deliver? When I sum 9:00am - 7:00am I get 2:00 then if I divide 864 by that I get 0:00 if I leave it formatted as time. And if I change the format to general I get 10368?? I should get 432 9am-7am gives 0.00 in time. if you format as number it will give you 0.08333333... that means 0.083333333.... day. so 864/.0833333......./24 will give your per hour i.e. 432 A1 ------7:00am A...
