    Something's wrong with Excel Help in my version. Specifically, when I select Excel Help from the menu, I get a window that offers a few canned help topics but no options for searching help topics, or even browsing all the possible help topics. It's kind of a glaring absence, and I suspect there must be a simple fix that I just can't figure out... because my Excel Help isn't working right!

    Screen grab attached.

    What happens if you click the little oval in the upper right corner?

    My Excel Help (Office 2004) has a tool bar across the top and a sidebar. The tool bar controls what shows in the sidebar, although I'm not sure that clicking "Home" has any effect.

    I suspected the fix would be simple, and it was embarrassingly so. Thank you Gregg!
