Analysis for Office 2.2 - F4 Value Help not working correctly

Hello,

i am currently facing the problem that the F4 short key for value help is not working correctly. If i want to open via F4 in a newly opened workbook, nothing happens. Only if i open the value help via "?", then the F4 shortkey works.

    Hello Saood,

    This is a bug in AO 2.2 and there is no fix available for it at present in this codeline.

    Please upgrade to higher versions of AO such as 2.4 where this issue is not present if this feature is of critical importance to you.

    Hope this helps.

    Warm Regards,
    Swathi

    Hi Tammy,

    thanks a lot for your answer! I have looked into the thread.

    I am not quite sure how this will help me with my problem. The issue i am having is, that the Input help does not open at all with F4. Only after first opening it with click on > "?"

    Hi Tammy,

    sure.

    The picture shows that this cell has an Input value help. Usually there are at least two ways to open the help.

    1. F4

    2. Click on the ?-symbol

    The problem i am having now is that pressing F4 to open the Input value help is not working.

    Only AFTER opening the value help with the ?-Symbol once, i can use F4 to open. Then it works perfectly fine.

    Let me know, if you need more Input.

    Hello Swathi,

    thanks a lot for your answer.

    Currently, the customer will stick to 2.2., but it's good to know that this bug has been fixed.
