    Unanswered: Display help text

    I would like to create a information/help text next to controls on a form, that become visible when the mouse is close to the object.
    I tried to find it in the help but time is limited, the books are at home, so please provide me the solution.

    Bob,

    Right click on the control in Design View and select properties, then go to the 'Other' tab and you will see a property called 'ControlTip Text'. Whatever you enter in here will appear when you move the mouse over the control in Form View.

    Cheers,

    JBee.
