context sensitve help

Posted by Lou on September 24, 2001 5:52 AM

We have developed a rather intricate spreadsheet model
and now need to add context sensitive help. Ideally, if
within a cell, the person hits, F1 for help, or simply
on mouseover, some help is displayed is what we are looling

How would I accomplish this task. Any and all help greatly

You could add a comment to the cell (Insert>Comment)

Thanks for the response. I have thought of that and
the biggest problem is that the user could either
change or delete the comment, thus rendering it
useless. Plus, I need it to carry over to different
and separate instances of the model.

Thanks though I do appreciate the time.
