Inserting a pop-up text box

Posted by Jay on December 10, 2001 10:17 PM

I have Microsoft Excel 2000. I want to create pop-up windows within a file that, when activated, pop-up a small window (similar to how Excel's Help section does) that provides some form of additional assistance to the user of the file. The pop-up window can then be deleted when completed. Can anyone point me to a solution?

You could try a message box that pops up when file is opened..

sub auto_open
Msgbox ("Welcome, please........")
End sub

Or right click on the cell where the assistance is required and enter a comment....
