    lost all my ControlCaptions

    Word97SR2

    I recently lost all my ControlCaptions (the little yellow boxes that pop up with a hint when I hover the mouse).

    Well, ALMOST all of them.

    Actually Only the controls inside a GROUP lost their captions.

    I'd used the group object from the ToolBox to effect a nice border around controls. For some reason it inhibited the captions. I'm not going to look for it now, but if anyone knows off-hand why this is so .. (hovers metaphorical mouse over heads of forum members hoping for a little yellow box to appear ....)

    ToolTips don't work in grouped controls, as far as I know, and I'm not sure which group object you're referring to ... or for that matter, which application. If you just put a frame around the controls rather than actually grouping them, send the box to the back so it's behind the controls. That will get back the tooltips for that situation.
