Default making a 'help' or tips box when user clicks

I'd like to know how to set up a form to open upon clicking a "?" in a macro form. I've used msgbox but formatting is awful...need to handle a lot of text in a nice compact format...anyone?

Right click on the project in project explore and choose add form. Add a new form and give it a name.

Go to your main form in design view and double click your question mark label. This will take you to code view for the form and put you in the labels clcik event. Write in this line.

myInfoForm.Show vbModeless
Where myInfoForm is the name of your new form.
