SQL Server 2008 R2 Combined Help Collection Manager

The documentation in the SQL Server 2008 R2 Help system is organized into Help collections. If you have installed multiple Help collections on your computer, you might be able to change which collections are included in the combined Help collection. The names of Help collections that are installed on your computer are listed at the end of this topic.

To modify the combined Help collection

  1. Select the check boxes for the Help collections that you want to be included in the combined Help collection, and clear those you want to be excluded.

    Help collections have the potential to load inappropriate code from malicious users. Only include Help collections from trusted sources.

    Excluding Help collections from the combined Help collection might block your access to documentation that you require. Changes to the combined Help collection change the Contents, Search, and Index. Consider using filters to focus on Help topics related to your needs.

  2. Click Update Combined Help Collection. The next time you open Help, the combined Help collection will include the Help collections that you selected and exclude those that you cleared.
    While the Help collection is updated, SQL Server Books Online or SQL Server Management Studio might take several minutes to reopen.
