Hi Christopher,

Never used Doc-to-Help. Then again, I have never used Help & Manual, but the latter appears to be easier to set up and use, and that is what is needed here. The developer who will take over the project is experienced with MySQL and Access, but is a lightweight on how to use Word properly let alone an online Help development program...and their on a tight schedule. Several years ago, during one of those never ending tool-wars, Doc-to-Help was described as powerful but had a steep learning curve. From your experience, has that changed?
