Hello,
I would like to change the mouse pointer (control tip??) when the mouse highlighs a label.
I would like it to change into a hand like a hyperlink.
Is this possible?
I will change the labels to command buttons if I have to, but would rather not.

Thanks.

Yes ... see attached demo mdb.

Just add this function call to the On Mouse Move for any control - directly on the property sheet:

=SSF_DsplyMouseCursor("Hand")

If you look at that function in the module, you can get many different icons besides the Hand ... just pass a different parameter.
