Is there any way I can run my mouse over a section and have a pop up appear

"say a small picture" for a few seconds and then close? Im am not good at

macros so if so can you explain in steps?

Thanks!

    • The red indicator indicates that there is a comment in that cell.

      You can use:

      tools|Options|View tab|Comment section

      to hide the comment, to show the indicator only (the comment will appear when

      you mouse over the cell) or to show both the indicator and the comment.

      You'll notice that there isn't an option to hide the comment indicator, but

      still allow the comment to appear.

    • Sorry, a little too quick on the Post button. How does Microsoft do the

      little info box on their canned templates? Are they not comments? There are

      no red triangles in those fields. Thanks.

    • Are there green triangles on the left side?

      Maybe you're seeing the error/warning messages from Tools|Options|Error

      Checking.

    • Those are most likely Data Validation messages.

      Select a cell with the pop-up and check for DV.

    • You nailed it, Gord! Thanks. It's been bugging me for a while. Now I can

      get rid of all those clunky comments when I just want to add instructions for

      a field!

      Best regards,

      Mike
