Go to http://www.helpwriter.com
and take there VB HelpWriter lite edition.
You also will need a Microsoft Help Compiler
version 4.0, which you can find in Microsoft
Why? Of course, you may use Word Editor
to create rtf file, but most of work you will
need to do manually, when VB HelpWriter
even don't need the text editor, and
most of work it performs automatically,
it even creates the VB Module file for
corresponding version of VB, containing
all the necessary constants, API Declarations
and functions. I am using it already
a year, and very impressed of it.

I personally use Borhelp for old-style help files. It is FREE and has no limitations on it(IE, not shareware), it is a macro for Word. Do a search online for it.
You could also try making HTML help files. They get packaged into ONE file.
