reassigning a dynamic URL for a form's push button

using LO Version: 5.0.1.2 on iMac with OSX10.10.5

I'm developing a multi-platform application which I'm attempting to be OS and file system independent. I have a help button on each of my forms to which I've assigned a Action (rather than use one of the events or the HELP URL) Open document/web page and have supplied a URL pointing to a HTML file of my help pages .

However the URL only works for my system. I need for it to be dynamic and to be able re-assign it when the application is running on a users system. I'll have my help web pages stored offline in a pre-known user application support directory.

[As an aside I've tried using the HELP URL on the button's control panel but cannot get it to work even after following all the instructions about installing a help pack and using [SHIFT]-[F1]. Anyway I don't want my users to have to have the hassle of doing all that]

My question is simply what is the BASE macro code to allow me to change the URL in this instance.

My idea is that when the user installs the application it will conduct a one off re-assignment of all the help buttons on all the forms.
