    Question VBA F1 Help function gives SSL Libraries error

    Hi All,

    First post as pretty competant on excel (for my needs) and manage to fnd answers to most things online or trial and error. However I have decided to move into the light and try my hand at VBA and seem to have hit a snag early on with the Help function which I am likely to rely on as much as in my early days of excel.

    I am running Office 2013 (only just upgraded from 2010) on Windows 7 and when I press F1 or click on the Help when in VBA I get the error below and then it takes me to a website that doesnt really help when I click ok.

    If I am in excel then F1 works and brings up the usual help window. As a point of interest in VBA for Word, Access and Powwerpoint the F1 automatically sends me to a website without the intial error pop up, but still no Help window..... Am I missing something?

    Now this message might as well be in Latin for all the undestanding that I have of its meaning.

    I have tried various seraches to try to get to the bottom of this with no success.

    Sorry I realise I seem to have waffled on for a bit now

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks
