Help Buttons

You have a complex sheet that requires a way for the user to get help.You could place the information in comment boxes, but they aren't very obvious, especially to the novice Excel user. Another option is to create help buttons.The user could click on a button and a help form would appear.

On the worksheet,create small labels with a question mark in each one.To get the button-like appearance shown in Figure 20.11,set the specialEffect property of the labels to Raised and darken the BackColor. Place one label per row.Two columns over from the button,enter the help text you want to appear when the label is clicked. Hide this help text column.
