Help File Name

When you create a Help file for your application, if you name the file S<Prefix>HELP.CHM (if HTML-style) or S<Prefix>HELP.HLP (if Windows-style), your application will SET HELP TO whichever file name and extension it finds in the application’s home directory. If files with both extensions are found, the CHM file takes precedence.

As an alternative, you can give the Help file any name you wish but you must then specify the name of the file in the Help File field on the Options – Environment form. See Environment.
