Office 97 Tips

Add Reminders

ToolTips are those little bits of text that pop up when you point the mouse at a button or menu item inside many Windows 95 programs. They take the worry out of remembering all of Access 97's arcane controls. Now you can attach these helpful items to fields, buttons, or other items on your forms:

  1. Open the form in Design View, then right-click the item you want to work with.
  2. From the pop-up menu, select Properties to open the dialog box.
  3. Click the Other tab in the dialog box, then type your ToolTip text in the ControlTip Text area.
  4. When you're done, close the Properties dialog box, and save your form.
