It's not a file, it's a new section in the help file. Select Contents >
Installing IBO4. The helpfile install instructions are the last topic in
that section.

No, none at all. The TIB_Currency doc is all there, accessible from both
the Contents>Components>Components list and from a large number of entries
in the index.

Could your help setup be still looking at an older piece of your help
system, e.g. IBO.gid might be still hanging around somewhere? (The old
helpfile didn't include IB_Currency). Let me know whether the problem
persists after you have applied the tips and workarounds suggested in the
installation topic...

When Jason returns, I'll ask him about it. It might be that, somehow, this
comp didn't get a Help Context ID because something is missing from the
source, or in the wrong place...
