    status bar text (2002)

    Hi All, is it possible to have the text in the status bar displayed elsewhere.....ie. in a text box located in the form header? thanks, Van

    What status bar text in particular? The statusbar text is a property of many of the objects in Access, so what are you trying to do?

    You could put it in the ControlTip Text property so you hover mouse over control help will display

    Re: status bar text (2002)

    Hi Charlotte, sorry for the delay in reply....it was the weekend! I want to a description message (kind of like the control tip) to appear in text box at the top of the form. I want to help the user as the form has many variables, all of which are quite complicated (medical terminology, etc). I've thought about the control tip feature, but it only kind of pops-up and i want a more permanent description to appear. Thanks, Van

    You could copy the ControlTip text into a text box at the top of the form from the OnGotFocus event of each control.

    If you don't have an OnGotFocus events coded you could do this from the OnOpen event of the form for each TextBox or ComboBox control.
