I believe it was included as part of Office 97: I don't think it was
available as a separate purchase.

I have been collecting Access procedures from here, there and everywhere for
a long time. They are in a folder on my harddrive and each procedure is a
Word file. There must be arounf 1000 files. The procedures are all indexed
by category and all you need to do is go to the folder, select a category
and you get a list of files. A sample is shown below. If this would be of
help to you, I will sell you a CD containing all the procedures for $125.
Email me at my email address below if you are interested.

Creating Multi-Lines in a ControlTip Text

Q Is there any way to make the ControlTip Text multi-lines? I'd like to be
able to give a short phrase about what to enter in a textbox and then skip a
line and show some examples. I know that the ControlTip Text is limited to
255 characters.
A1 In Properties Sheet:

Right-click on the ControlTip Text property box and choose "zoom" to get an
editable
area. Use ctrl+enter to move to a new line. To create a blank line, use
ctrl+enter to move to a new line, insert a space and then use ctrl+enter to
move to another new line.

Note: The space is necessary to create the blank line. What appears to be a
blank line, will actually be a line that contains the space.

A2 In Code

Me.customerID.ControlTipText = "Help Text .." & vbCrLf & " " & vbCrLf
&"Example"

Note: The space is necessary to create the blank line. What appears to be a
blank line, will actually be a line that contains the space.

Steve,

If any of those Access procedures were created by me, you do not have the
right to charge for distributing them. That is likely true of many others,
and applies whether or not they contain a copyright statement. Check your
collection and do not re-distribute for charge any that I created.

That's a pretty steep price to ask for public domain material. If I were
going to pay that kind of money, I'd probably go the FMS site and look at
what they sell commercially -- as I recall, not only do they have the code
library, it is tested and documented.

Or, I'd check Arvin's site... he's got a _free_ code library database.

Of course, it might be worth the OP's money to save the time it would take
to download the free code that is available. Mine is freely available for
people to use, but not to sell.

I've rarely seen code labeled as being "in the public domain", and, of
course, such lableling might be added by someone other than the author. Good
luck if someone recognizes their code and decides to pursue the matter.
