Obtaining Help while Working in Excel
Often you may need help while working on a document without already having the Help
window open. For example, you may be unsure about how a particular command works, or
you may be presented with a dialog box that you are not sure how to use. Rather than open-
ing the Help window and initiating a search, Excel Help provides you with the ability to
search directly for help.
Figure C–13 shows one option for obtaining help while working in Excel. If you
want to learn more about a command, point to the command button and wait for the
Enhanced ScreenTip to appear. If the Help icon appears in the Enhanced ScreenTip,
press the F1 key while pointing to the command to open the Help window associated with
that command.

Figure C–14 shows a dialog box with a Get help button in it. Pressing the F 1 key
while the dialog box is displayed opens a Help window. The Help window contains help
about that dialog box, if available. If no help fi le is available for that particular dialog box,
then the main Help window opens.
