Comment on macro button

Is it possible to get commentary to be revealed when the cursor is passed over a macro button from a form.

Please note that I do not mean the comment got from the Insert/Comment menu.

I am using Excel 2000.

Thanx for your help.



RE: Comment on macro button

should be a property called ToolTipsText for the button - set that equal to whatever text you want to appear on the mouseover.


RE: Comment on macro button

Hi Mongooses

Thanx for your solution.
It appears you can indeed get this to happen with the ToolTipText, BUT only when you use this with any of the control buttons in the UserForm environment.

As I have already created the workbook with several macro buttons from the Forms environment I need the ToolTipText to be invoked.

Any ideas
