Need help with creating a pop-up in Word (Please)

51988660005198866000 Member Posts: 1
Hello,
Please let me know if this is possible and how to do it. I need to have a pop-up box appear with instructional text within the box, when it hovers over a specific section title for a Word template.

For example:
If the topics were:

Executive Summary

Scope

If I the pointed the curser at Executive summary a pop-up will appear telling the user what is expected when you write an executive summary. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks..

    I don't know of any event procudure that occurs when the cursor hovers over particular text. you could record a new macro, assign it to a key such as Alt+H and have that display a message box like sample-

    You could have a line in the template to remind the user, ie:
    "Press Alt+H for Help"

    Sub Macro2()
    '
    ' Macro2 Macro
    ' Macro recorded 05/04/2007 by
    '

    Dim msg As String

    msg = "this is a description of what should" & vbCr & _
    "be filled out when completing the" & vbCr & _
    "executive summary"

    MsgBox msg, vbInformation, "Info"
    End Sub
