Find Help faster! Help now includes full-text search, a feature that lets you search for Help topics containing specific words by simply typing a word or two rather than a full sentence in either the Office Assistant balloon or in the Help Viewer.
You can use the Office Assistant to perform full-text searches of the Help topics for each program. For example, to get Help about how to format a chart, type format chart in the Assistant balloon. For best results during a full-text search of the Help topics, type a few words, rather than a complete sentence or question, in the Assistant. For example, to find Help about how to print more than one copy of a file at a time, type print copies. You can also print Help topics for easy reference.
