Word 2010 popup comment (like Excel insert comment)

Is it possible to create a pop-up text box if one scrolls their mouse over a certain word/symbol in 2010 Word?

If so, how is that done?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I would create a bookmark on that text, then create a hyperlink to itself with a screen tip and remove the hyperlink formatting.  That way when the person mouses over the text, the pop-up screen tip appears just like a hyperlink.  If they click it accidentally they won't go anywhere, since it hyperlinks to the bookmark of itself.

I attached an example.

You can add Comments to a document via the menu.

You could create a Hyperlink with a 'Screen tip' with the text that you want to see, which will show when you hover the mouse over it.

The screen tip solution was best. The comment didn't work work for this particular solution but was for another unrelated item.
Thanks
