Getting Help

In Excel 2003, help is just a click away. On the far right end of Excel’s menu bar is the question box (the box that contains the text “Type a question for help”), where you can type a question or one or two key words to quickly track down the help you need. Whenever you need help, take the following steps to ask your question:

1.
Click in the question box.

2.
Type one or more words to describe what you’re trying to do or what you would like to learn more about.

3.
Press Enter. This action opens the Search Results task pane that displays links to several topics that match your search entry, as shown in Figure 2.11.

4.
Click the desired topic. This action opens Excel’s Help window, which displays the requested information, as shown in Figure 2.12. (See the next section, “Navigating Excel’s Help Window,” for details on how to navigate the Help window.)
