Prompt text

Hi,

I have been asked if it's possible to have guidelines appear in our Reports
template which will disappear as soon as the user starts typing. E.g. Under
a heading SUMMARY could be some text to describe the details required in a
summary. As soon as the user starts typing the summary the guidleines are
replaced with the information the user types.

Is there some way this could be achieved?

Thanks,

John

I have tried putting several lines of instructions in the display text and
get an error "DisplayText cannot span more than one Line!"

Is this a limitation of this method?

Macrobutton display is limited to one line. Sorry.

I included the Instructions text and the MacroButton in a bookmark and then
had the macro delete the bookmark on a single click of the field.

Works just like I wanted.

Thanks for your help.

John
