Developing user documentation and Help files

In addition to your programming documentation, you need to develop user documentation. You have two basic choices: paper-based documentation or electronic documentation.

Help screens are standard fare in Windows applications. Fortunately, your Excel applications can provide tutelage — even in context. You can develop Help files and display a particular topic on demand.

Although developing Help files requires quite a bit of additional effort, the effort may be worthwhile for a large project. To simplify the process, I suggest that you acquire any of several software products designed for creating Windows Help files.
