Can't get Online Help to work in ADCD

Can't get Online Help to work in ADCD
I'm using z/OS 1.6 ADCD with DB2 V8. I'm trying to get the DB2 Online Help
to work as described in DB2 Install Gd. I have DB2 panels working in TSO
(ISPF) and can get to help panel DSN4V2DB (About Online Help) but from
there it goes nowhere. If I PF3 I go back to DB2I menu (DSNEPRI). If I
just enter it goes to modified ISR00003 (as suggested in Install Gd. chap
7, step 9) which has a DB2 selection to go to panel DSN4V2DB. It goes in
circles! What am I missing? If anyone is familiar with the ADCD, is there
some part of DB2 that didn't get installed that needs to be there for DB2
OLH?

(in response to Bob Henry)
Assuming that you dutifully followed all of the Installation manuals
steps
including initializing book manager, your problem is most likely one of
the following,

1. You are allocating your DB2 libraries in a clist using LIBDEF but
you are not
including ISPTLIB and hlq.SDSNSPFT
OR

2. (this is probably it). Your CLIST for the DB2I option is doing
the following command

ISPEXEC SELECT PANEL(DSNEPRI) NEWAPPL(DSNT) PASSLIB OPT(&ZTRAIL)

but in NEWAPPL you have something other than DSNT

The appl DSNT is concatenated with CMDS and a member is looked for
with
that name in SDSNSPFT. IBM gives you two members DSNTCMDS and
DSNECMDS
which have the default SELECT for the Help panel.
