How to correctly code rt-click Help pages for single fields???

How to correctly code rt-click Help pages for single fields???

I am using Microsoft® HTML Help Workshop. What do I need to right-click on any field in order to bring up it's Help page? I've just come on board this company to redevelop their Help files, but I'm having a hard time getting any Help files to display at all by right-clicking GUI fields on a FoxPro based application. All I get is the 'HH_HELP_CONTEXT called without a [MAP] section' message every time. All I have currently as .h files is a 'PMWHelp.h'.

Do I need a 'map.h' and an 'alias.h' file to perform this functionality? My 'PWMHelp.h' file includes entries such as:

#DEFINE IDH_2306_model 2306
#DEFINE HIDH_2356_model 2356

I use this example because this 'Model' field on my GUI displays a Help page upon right-clicking in a far previous version of the .chm file, but after decompiling this file in Microsoft® HTML Help Workshop, I don't even see my .h file.

It's been awhile since doing this over 7 years ago, and I never coded right-click Help before, so I am quite ignorant on how accomplish this. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! Thanx
