    Hi All,

    This is possibly a fools errand but I am trying to find out if it is
    possible to add "ToolTip" functionality to my PowerPoint2003 presentation.
    Basically I would like the presentation to respond to a mouse over event by
    showing text about a particular graphic/text box.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Thanks,
    Chris Grey
