XL7: Error Appears When You Click Help in the Template Wizard

SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Excel 7.0, if you use the Template Wizard to create a database
template that is based on a database other than Microsoft Excel or
Microsoft Access, the following error message may appear if you click Help:
The topic does not exist. Contact your application vendor for an updated
Help file.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the Help topic does not exist. You may
see this behavior when you specify a dBASE or Microsoft FoxPro
database in the Template Wizard, and you click Help on the following
message:
Cannot open <database program> Database <folder name><file name>

WORKAROUND

When the "Cannot open..." message appears, click OK, then click Help
in the Template Wizard in the Step 2 of 5 window.

NOTE: To create a database template that is based on a dBASE or FoxPro
database, you must enable the ODBC add-in in Microsoft Excel. To do this,
click Add-Ins on the Tools menu and select the ODBC Add-In option.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products
listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem
and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it
becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

The Template Wizard can automatically copy the contents of cells to a
database each time you save a workbook that is based on a template. The
Template Wizard walks you through the steps of linking cells in the
template to a field in a database or a Microsoft Excel List.
