Is it possible for a ControlTip text "help balloon" to appear when the mouse is over a subform.  I can assign a value to ControlTip text for the subform, however, when the subform is used on a form, the flyover help balloons do not appear.

It does, but it takes a while before it actually show up. It works even with either form setting up as modal and pop up.  It doesn't show up only when the sub from is in a datasheet view.

Ouch!  That's exactly the format/view that I am using.  :-(

So design the subform to look like the datasheet view.
