Bruce,

RoboHelp generates a report of MapIDs as part of the project files, but (and I don't know if this is a programming-language function or not) you should look for HelpTopics.h; it's a text file, but it could easily be converted to CSV for spreadsheet use.

Oops...sorry. But, I would like a flat file... like Excel, etc.



-- What HAT you're using (RoboHelp)
-- What kind of help output you're creating (MS HTMLHelp, ).
-- What language the application is in (C#)

List members are much more likely to be able to help if you specify at least the following:

-- What HAT you're using (e.g., RoboHelp, Mif2Go).
-- What kind of help output you're creating (e.g., MS HTMLHelp, Oracle Help).
-- What language the application is in (e.g., Java, C#).
